Maidstone United’s players have been turned into LEGO® men for a new exhibition at Maidstone Museum.
The first team are standing in front of a LEGO® replica of the Gallagher Stadium’s main stand. It was commissioned by the Gallagher Group who are sponsoring Maidstone Borough Council’s Brick City event, which features architectural landmarks made from the world famous toy bricks.
Club chief executive Bill Williams said: “With an exhibition all about bricks, who better to sponsor it then our friends at Gallagher. The main stand replica looks superb and it must have taken someone a good few hours to put it together – the attention to detail is first class. I hope many will get to see it and the rest of the exhibition over the next few weeks.”
Gallagher Chief Executive Nick Yandle said: “When asked which local development in Maidstone we thought should be chosen for the model then the Gallagher Stadium was the obvious choice. We are sure that the Lego event will be a great success for everyone involved.”
There are more than 60 exhibits and these include Battersea Power Station, Buckingham Palace, London Olympic Stadium and an amazing three-metre long model of St. Pancras Station.
Brick City runs until Sunday 6 September. Admission is £4 for adults, £2 for under 16s or a family ticket (two adults and up to three children) costs £10.
Maidstone Museum can be found on St Faith’s Street, sandwiched between Brenchley Gardens and Fremlin Walk – it’s five minutes from the Gallagher Stadium. It is open Monday to Saturday 10:00 to 17:00 and Sunday 12:00 to 16:00.
After the exhibition, the main stand LEGO® replica will be gifted to the club.
