Nearly 32,000 bricks have already been placed on the recreation of one of Bury St Edmunds’ most iconic buildings by visitors to the cathedral by paying £1 per brick.

There are now sponsorship opportunites available to local businesses and those with a connection to the town and Suffolk.

Marie Taylor-Stent, events and marketing manager at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, said: “We have been so pleased with the response to our Lego project.

“It has given us a chance to reach out to new audiences in a fun but meaningful way. This is an innovative and fun opportunity for local companies to make a connection or reconnect with the cathedral and play their part in the ongoing future of this very special building.
