Build your dream castle in the York Castle Museum BRICKLIVE play pit this Easter!

DATE: 15 March 2022

Dive into a brick play pit at York Castle Museum this Easter and build your dream castle! 

York Castle Museum are thrilled to have partnered with world renowned BRICKLIVE to offer an exciting, playful and immersive event, suitable for the whole family! Visitors will have the chance to join in the fun in the interactive BRICKLIVE pit, learn about the history of York Castle Museum and design and build their dream castle.

Fiona Burton, Public Engagement Manager at York Museums Trust, said: “York Castle Museum owes its name to the castle that was originally located on site, which was an important place of power, protest, imprisonment, and everyday life for almost 1,000 years. We hope people will feel inspired from their visit, unleash their imagination in our brick pit, enjoy building some unique castles and then capture the memory with our photo opportunity at the end of the experience. The event is part of the general admission to the museum and will be a great experience for all ages. We look forward to seeing everyone’s creations!”

BRICKLIVE is focused on creating an environment that encourages interactive play, fosters creativity, collaboration, and physical experiences in an inclusive and safe environment. The BRICKLIVE brand continues to grow globally due to the popularity of the shows, exhibitions, tours and events.

As part of our BRICKLIVE events this April, York Museums Trust are delighted to also be offering an Easter experience to those visiting the Yorkshire Museum. On 16 and 17 April visitors will have the chance to build their own Easter bricks chick or bricks bunny to take home!

Castle of the Future runs from 9-24 April at York Castle Museum and Easter Bricks from 16-17 April at the Yorkshire Museum. Both events are included in general admission. Find out more and book now at York Castle Museum and Yorkshire Museum.
