Build a model of St Edmund - LEGO® building competition...

Do you love LEGO®? Are you creative? St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds is launching a competition to build a model of St Edmund from LEGO bricks to mark St Edmund’s Day 2020.

 

The competition is split into three age categories – 4 to 7, 7 to 11 and 12 and over (including adults). Any number of bricks can be used. Once completed, entrants are requested to complete an entry form and send this with up to 3 photos of their model to visits@stedscathedral.org. The deadline for entries is 5 pm on Thursday 19 November. The winner will be announced on Friday 20 November, St Edmund’s Day. The prize for the overall winner is a LEGO model kit of St Edmund’s Wolf. There will be an individual prize in each age category too.

 

The Cathedral is in the middle of a project to build a model of the Cathedral from LEGO bricks. To date 82,000 bricks have been added thanks to visitors donating £1 per brick. Model building has had to halt during the pandemic but entrants to the competition are encouraged to make a donation, which will be turned into bricks to help the Cathedral model grow, even in in lockdown.

 

Sarah Friswell, Cathedral PR, Visits and Volunteer Manager, who oversees the Cathedral’s LEGO building project, said: “We really want to encourage people to celebrate St Edmund’s Day in whatever ways we can this year. We hope that the competition gives a chance to be creative and have some fun and to think about St Edmund and his importance to this town and county.”

 

Full details and the entry form can be found on the Cathedral’s website https://stedscathedral.org/st-edmund-model-lego-competition
