We’re a group of brick lovin’ grown-ups (or, as the community affectionately calls themselves – AFOLs – Adult Fans of LEGO®), who love to discuss, share and generally get involved in anything to do with the humble LEGO® brick. Primarily based in the Midlands, although we have many members spread far and wide across the country, we love nothing more than meeting up in person, doing a bit of shopping (LEGO® of course) and having a quick bite to eat whilst reviewing our latest purchase, LUG projects or challenges.
Here’s just few of us in February 2020 when we met up at the Milton Keynes store, and then afterwards for a quick burger.
Whenever there’s a chance, there’s nothing we’d love more than to show off our fabulous creations, known as MOCs (My Own Creations) to the wider public at one of the many shows that we attend, see our News section for more on that!.
We started with just a few guys and an idea around 6 years ago. From these early beginnings the Brick Central LEGO® User Group (LUG) was formed and had its first official AGM in 2016. As the LUG grew, we turned to LEGO® to upgrade the LUG’s status to become ‘recognised’, which we did in 2017. This allowed us to benefit from an acknowledged presence from The LEGO® Group – meaning increased interaction and support. This occurs through the LEGO® Ambassador Network, for which Mike Freeman (The Batman) is our representative. Check out the ‘Our Team’ page to find out about him and the other members of our Organising Committee.
