Organisers of a special Christmas exhibition are appealing for people to donate their unwanted LEGO bricks to be recycled for it.
The Beaney in Canterbury wants any unwanted pre-loved LEGO-compatible bricks to be used in its Brickmas exhibition which will feature BRICKLIVE Christmas models including a life-size Santa, reindeer and elves.
There will also be a free Christmas trail around Canterbury, with festive brick models hidden in shop windows.
The donated bricks will be sent off to local schools so that children can help create Santa's grotto at the Beaney and build the models for the city trail.
The Beaney's elves will be collecting the pre-owned bricks at the museum's visitor information desk until Sunday, September 26.
Lead councillor for culture, Cllr Joe Howes, said: "There must be cupboards and boxes galore out there heaving with unwanted bricks, so why not let us take them off your hands and put them to good use?
"The more we get, the more spectacular the end result will be.
"We're really looking forward to the Brickmas project this Christmas. It's going to bring a spectacular new attraction to Canterbury over the festive period and we're sure local people are going to love it."
All bricks used will be donated to schools and child care settings afterwards.
