Big LEGO® Build

The first bricks in our Big LEGO® Build were laid on Thursday 11th February 2016 at a special ceremony to launch the project, which aims to build a scale-model of Exeter Cathedral out of LEGO bricks.

The final model, made up of over 300,000 LEGO bricks, will be an impressive 3.6m long, 2m wide and over 1m high.

Everyone visiting the Cathedral is invited to get involved in the build and for every £1 donated those donating can add a brick to the model.

A great new team of volunteers will be on hand to assist you, tell you about the project and what we hope to achieve.

Money raised will help us preserve and conserve the fabric of Exeter Cathedral.
