Charlottenlund vgs, Trondheim, Norway
Over the last weekend of April, LEGO builders will gather in the Norwegian city of Trondheim for the biggest annual LEGO event in the country. Facilitated by the Norwegian RLUG Brikkelauget, PKH (På Kloss Hold - a play on words, it means "up close", but "kloss" is also the Norwegian word for "brick") has become a big success story, possibly the world's northernmost LEGO event, and the seventh edition will be bigger and better than any before.
We're expecting around 100 AFOL participants and upwards of 5,000 visitors over the two public days. For the attendees, there will be workshops and presentations, an AFOL dinner on Saturday, and a few surprises - and for the audience, we will put on the biggest and best LEGO exhibition ever seen in Norway, with MOCs by builders from ten different countries and three continents.
Among other things on display in the halls, we will have a minifig-scale version of Arendell from Disney's Frozen, a huge city layout, a collaborative medieval diorama, a minifig-scale model of the Dresden Frauenkirche in Germany, a microscale diorama of central London featuring brand new builds by architecture wizard Rocco Buttliere from the US, and the Dutch GBC connoisseur Maico Arts and other builders will collaborate to make the largest Great Ball Contraption ever shown in Norway. There will also be a selection of older LEGO sets on display, as well as building pits for the children.
We hope to see you there as a visitor, if you're in the vicinity - and if you're not, maybe you'll consider signing up for our event as a participant next year! In that case, you could ask to join our event group on Facebook - you can find the link just below this. It's closed, but that's just to avoid spam - if you're interested, just ask and we'll let you in!
Our fellow Ambassador Eduard Petrac took some pictures last year, to be found here - and Maico did a great video walkthrough, here.
