The Big Build

22–24 July

Brick America is launching with a 3-day, Big Build event! You are invited to work alongside LEGO artist, Warren Elsmore, and his team, to create a giant model of the Hollywood Sign, in celebration of its 100th anniversary this year.

The Big Build event will be run 10.30am–4.30pm on 22nd, 23rd, 24th July and will be a drop-in activity (no need to pre-book a slot). Visitors can create a large LEGO brick out of smaller bricks and Warren’s team will then assemble them to create the sign. 

Outdoor Theatre: The Wizard of Oz

8 July (5.15 - 8.00pm)

AGE 4+ | RUNNING TIME: 110 mins

You are invited to click your heels and ease on down the yellow brick road as Immersion Theatre proudly presents a brand new adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, a magical family show guaranteed to have you in stitches from beginning to end!

Join Dorothy on her quest to the Emerald City as she and her loyal friends: the brainless but cheeky scarecrow, the cowardly lion and the heartless (literally!) tin man navigate through a magical land in search of the mighty and mysterious Wizard of Oz. With the Wicked Witch of the West determined to stop them by any means necessary, however, will the spirit of friendship triumph over evil?

Performed by Immersion Theatre outdoors in the Amphitheatre at the American Museum & Gardens.
