LEGO buffs are invited to build a bus at Broad Street Mall.

To celebrate the launch of Reading Buses' new number 17 bus, shopping chiefs want budding builders to make their own replica bus.

And international LEGO Brick artist Kevin Hall will be on hand to lead the fun and free event.

Graham Mountford, centre manager, said: "We’re really excited to be partnering with Reading Buses and Brick Galleria for our half term event. LEGO is a toy that spans the generations and offers enjoyment for all, so we feel this is a great opportunity for families enjoy some free fun and then pop along to the Reading Buses shop to find out more about the new buses.”

The workshops, which will be held on February 14, 15 and 16, take place at 10am, 11am, 1pm and 2pm.

Anyone aged four and above can participate and will be allowed to take their replica buses home.
