Brick History: Walk through history in LEGO® bricks

17 July – 26 September 2021 at The Hold


Brick History is a family-friendly journey through famous historical moments, all imagined in LEGO® bricks – how many do you recognise? From the dawn of the dinosaurs to the space age, LEGO® artist Warren Elsmore and his team have created a celebration of our shared stories, struggles, and triumphs, made from everyone’s favourite Danish toy. From tiny recreations that could fit in your hand, to a 1.5m square medieval castle bustling with activity, there are models to make you smile, to make you think, and to inspire you to build a better world.

Advance booking required.

Online Lecture Series: Suffolk At War

Begins 9th September see event listings for all dates.


Owing to its position on the North Sea coast and proximity to continental Europe Suffolk has always been prone to invasion from Britain’s enemies. In this lecture, we will examine the changing character of warfare during the twentieth century as experienced by the civilian population of Suffolk: including the threat of invasion, the effect on civilians of bombardment both from the sea and from the air and the risk of nuclear annihilation.

Welcome tea and coffee will be provided for all in-person ticket holders.

Please note that this event will be live-streamed and recorded. Live stream ticket holders will have the opportunity to ask questions in advance.
