LEGO displays, figures and more filled Winterbourne Glebe Hall at the weekend, as part of its first ever Lego Festival.

Around 500 people turned up to the event on Saturday in Winterbourne Earls, Salisbury, to take part in Lego workshops, enjoy themed displays and refreshments, and pick up some of the toys at a bargain price.

One of the organisers, Neil Grace, who brought 30 kilos of lose Lego to the festival, said it had "exceeded all expectations", adding: "We were not sure how many would turn up, but we got told that it had caused grid lock on the A338!

"It was packed within the first hour, and cakes were sold out before the end. I just couldn't get through the crowds, it was absolutely brilliant.

"It was an explosion of Lego by the end, the kids had a phenomenal time."

Around £1,000 was raised from the event which will go towards facilities in the village hall.

Neil added: "It is a really lovely village hall, it just got [Hallmark] level three accreditation.

"Lots of people were asking about next year's event, which will be held at the end of September again."
