More than 2,000 people attended the Big LEGO Build over four days, creating spaceports, pyramids, skyscrapers, parks, houses and pubs. The event was organised by Hertfordshire Association of Architects, with LEGO provided by Brickologists.

Alex Coates-Newman, editor of The LEGO Magazine, said: “I have never seen anything like it. It is so good to see young people away from TV and computer screens using their imagination.”

One nine-year-old girl made a model echoing the real Town Hall prison cells, but guarded by a dragon.

Cllr Annie Brewster, portfolio holder for sport and heritage, said: “Both the childrens' models and the LEGO Museum + Gallery were incredible, although we might struggle to raise the money for a vertical take-off space rocket......but never say never.”
