Cotswold Bricks and Trains Weekend - 10th & 11th August 2019



Important! Bricks & Trains Weekend Parking: Due to the inclement weather forecast this weekend, we will not be using our grass, event car park at Toddington and so parking there will be very limited. We'd encourage you to start your journey on the Railway this weekend from Cheltenham or Broadway where there is lots of parking. Don't forget to present your parking receipt at Broadway to get a discount on the train travel.

Following on from our successful Bricks event last year, August 2019 will see our third year of collaboration with Southern Lego Train Club. A chance for new and old fans of those small plastic bricks to be suitably excited and enthralled with the displays. Yes, another LEGO® event is coming to the GWSR; we will be holding a brick exhibition (LEGO® bricks to you and me), at Toddington over the weekend of 10th and 11th August 2019


Be enthralled by the expertise of Southern Lego Train Club's members, who will be providing the displays. There will also be demonstrations and a chance for our smaller visitors to have a go at building their own brick structures.


The exhibition will be open from 10:00 until 16:30 each day. Train Travel will be available on our standard services at the normal fares, a train travel ticket does not include entrance to the brick Events.  The prices for the Bricks Exhibition are £5 per adult or senior, £4 per child (5 to 16, under 5s free) and £17 per family (2A & 3C).  Train Travel tickets and Brick Exhibition tickets can be purchased in advance. Please be aware the cut-off date for on-line ticket sales is Mon 05 Aug 2019 00:00. This is to allow all tickets to be printed and posted to you.


Free parking will, as always, be available but, at Toddington, in the overflow car park and also at Cheltenham Race Course  Station.

In addition to the exhibits, we also welcome a number of traders selling Lego®.
