Manx National Heritage is pleased to announce Lily Cunningham, aged 9, has won the top prize in the LEGO® on the Loose trail held at Manx National Heritage sites. Lily is now the proud guardian of a display case containing all 32 of the collectible LEGO® minifigures from the trail, including Dave the Dragon and Miles the Baker. Lily was delighted to come back to the Manx Museum to collect her prize and said that her favourite character was Countess Charlotte before adding that she can’t wait for the next trail!

Over 1,000 people took part in trying to find the tribe of troublesome LEGO® minifigures hidden at Castle Rushen, the Manx Museum and the House of Manannan. There were over 500 correct completed entries submitted over the three week period.

Helen Ashcroft, Public Engagement Manager at Manx National Heritage said:

“Thank you to all of you who took part in the trail. All of us here at Manx National Heritage loved welcoming so many families to the sites to participate in the trail and it was great to have the characters back hiding around three of our iconic sites”.

For information on the upcoming programme of events and to plan your visit to the Manx National Heritage sites this year, please see
