The Brickish Association is the UK based umbrella group for ALEs resident in the UK, or who just like to hang with those who live there.

It is both an organisation (with a governing body, bylaws, members, officers, an annual meeting, a newsletter, etc and dues) and a community, in that its website brickish.org hosts discussion on a wide variety of topics as well as offering resources to members. It is a closed group, you must be a member to post there or even view postings.

The BA also publishes a paper newsletter The Brick Issue in March, July and November. PDF versions of back-issues are available to non-members on the BA website.

Membership currently costs 8 UKP a year.

History

The BA was founded in 2002. It was actually an outgrowth of the NBLTC train club, now a subclub of the BA.

The BA has done a number of events in conjunction with LEGO or at LEGOLAND Windsor.

Notable people
