Build it Lego Club at Levenshulme Market

This weekend whilst Damian got on with some jobs, the children and I headed to the Build it Lego Club held at Levenshulme Market. It’s one of those things I’ve seen time and time again come up on Facebook but I’ve never managed to actually get to it. As it was a long weekend and the weather was set to be dry I thought I’d head out for a few hours to allow Damian to get on with some jobs without ‘help’ from the children.

The market is held on the train station car park and opens from 10am. There are a wide range of stall holders, ranging from cards, jewellery, food and drink. On certain dates the Build it Lego Club are there also.

We don’t own much lego at the moment so I thought it would be nice to head here for the morning, plus at the bargain price of just £1 per child (and £2 if adults want to build too!) it seemed too good an opportunity to miss.

There were some large tables with three or four large bags of lego set out – Mr D and Miss E soon gathered some bits up and started to build away. Mr D started adding bits to a boat and Miss E got a base plate and started building on there, adding mini figures as she went. They spent around an hour building and really enjoyed themselves.

There was plenty of space for the children to sit and build and lots to choose from too – cars, boats, pirates and just good old lego bricks. Plenty to spark the imagination

After they’d finished building we went for a walk around the stalls. I picked up some bath bombs as a treat for our holiday soon from a stall called Tallenday. The children also chose a slice of cake each which was delicious. I had a good look around and almost treated myself to a gorgeous item of jewellery from The Mountain and Me. I am sure I’ll purchase something from them soon.

We had a lovely time at the market and we will definitely go back again for a future lego club. I am planning to go to the Friday evening food market in a couple of weeks time too – it’s worth taking a look at their Facebook page for details of the markets.

Levenshulme isn’t a part of Manchester that I would usually head to but I am really glad we went and it will definitely be on my radar again. I love things like this that are organised as a social enterprise and I never fail to be amazed at the range of creative talents on display at such things.

    £1 is a total bargain not to be missed for sure, nice that the kids had fun. I hope to take my nephew to one of these one day

    When my kids were little .. Legos were their favorite toys ever! In fact, I’m sure there are still some buried in the air ducts. I sure with there was something like this in our area. My grandson would be in heaven!

    Lego club is a fabulous idea! I have some colleagues (in their 30s/40s) who still enjoy playing with LEgo…I know, right! Those cupcakes look pretty good at the market too!

    I have never heard of this great day out before. I’m praying they have a lego club in London.
