HELP create Salisbury landmarks out of toy bricks to feature a special map.

Salisbury Museum is welcoming a team from Bricklive to create a map of Salisbury and bring toy bricks ready for visitors to build eight Salisbury landmarks, including the museum’s home – The King’s House, at an event on Tuesday, May 26.

The event is being held as part of the celebrations for Salisbury 2020 City on the Move. Salisbury 2020 is a year-long celebration for the 800th anniversary of Salisbury Cathedral’s move from Old Sarum, its founding, and the development of the city itself.

Museum director Adrian Green said: “In addition to the Cathedral, the city has a wealth of historic landmarks – hopefully this toy brick event will get people looking again at some of Salisbury’s incredible architectural gems as part of the 800 year anniversary.’

The museum has a track record of hosting toy brick events in Salisbury. The first event was in February 2016, when in just one day, 705 visitors helped to build a full size replica of John Constable’s Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows 1831, in just over 65,000 toy bricks.

Visitors to the museum have also recreated a huge postcard from Egypt; models of Egyptian Sphinxes; a giant illustration of The Pied Piper by Paul Kidby; and models of Sir Terry Pratchett’s character, The Luggage out of toy bricks.

The event will take place during May Half Term and is suitable for ages five and above who can come and build their own versions of some of Salisbury’s best-known landmarks.
