AUDACIOUS PLOT TO STEAL THE CROWN JEWELS IS UNCOVERED AT MILESTONES MUSEUM, BASINGSTOKE

Young crime-fighters have the chance to stop a fiendish plot to steal the Crown Jewels at a brand new, all-action exhibition at Milestones Museum.

Around the World Brick Adventure, which opened at the Basingstoke museum earlier this month, is a fantastic, live-action LEGO® challenge, where The Tiger Club – an international crime-fighting club just for children – has discovered a plot to steal the Crown Jewels.

100 incredible LEGO models have been built by Bright Bricks, the UK-based professional LEGO building company, including scale models of world-famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building and Sydney Opera House, as well as exotic animals and fabulous treasures. There are also fantastic life-size models of a pouncing tiger, a kangaroo family, and king of the sands, Tutankhamun.

Hidden in amongst the models is a trail of clues left behind by the Tiger Club, which globetrotters can use along with their very own Around the World Brick Adventure map to stop the thieves and save the Crown Jewels. Historic objects from the collections cared for by Hampshire Cultural Trust will be displayed alongside the LEGO models to complement the exhibition theme.

As well as being able to solve the main, live-action plot, there are many other LEGO brick activities to enjoy. Visitors are invited to come along to Milestones on Sundays in February and March, as well as Hampshire half term, 20-24 February, to live-build a 5 metre model of Big Ben. There are also LEGO play tables with a world map, a free play area, a LEGO graffiti wall, a LEGO Minifigure™ make-and-take, a LEGO mosaic activity at weekends and during school holidays, plus a fabulous Tiger Club LEGO badge to make and take home.

Janet Owen, CEO of Hampshire Cultural Trust, said: ‘We are delighted to be welcoming a LEGO exhibition back to Milestones, this year with another exciting adventure challenge for LEGO fans of all ages to enjoy. Around the World Brick Adventure follows on the huge success of Quest for the Brick Kingdom in 2016, which saw us breaking visitor records at Milestones, and I have no doubt that this year’s LEGO spectacular will be just as big a success.’

Around the World Brick Adventure runs until 23 April. Entry is included in the normal admission price, and there is a 20% discount when tickets are pre-booked online. Full details and opening times can be found at www.hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk.
