  • My child is on the Autism Spectrum. What can you tell us about the queues and crowds at your event?
    BRICKLIVE is popular with all fans of LEGO and we are expecting a lot of visitors.

    We have a dedicated entrance for visitors with disabilities or on the Autism Spectrum.

    Within the event, there will be a range of activities happening throughout the day. Some of these will involve queuing to take part in, but there will also be lots of areas dedicated to having big piles of LEGO bricks that people can just jump into and play with, with no arranged queues. Additionally there will be lots of exhibition areas where models are on display which won’t have any queues, but which can get crowded as everyone wants to see the amazing things the Adult Fans of LEGO have created from their own imaginations.

    Ultimately, we know that every child with autism is different and we encourage you to consider what will work best for your family.
