Thousands flock to Holt Hall for Lego event and world record bid
Big kids and real children showed their love for a classic toy at the weekend as they flocked to Holt Hall for a nostalgic event.
The North Norfolk facility was the venue for a Lego fair, which included a bid to set the world record for the largest tower of blocks signed by different people.
The organisers will have to wait a few weeks for the record attempt to be verified.
But in the meantime, an estimated 4,000 visited the event - raising upward of �10,000 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
It was organised by Fakenham couple Diane and Adrian Fletcher, who were given more than one million Lego blocks before it started after a public appeal.

Mrs Fletcher said she and her husband decided to do it after being convinced by their son.
She said: 'We do teddy bear days at Bircham Windmill. Our son said: 'Why don't you do something sensible that I will enjoy?' And that's how this started.'
