BUDDING shipbuilders can have a go at creating warships in a dockyard competition.

Toy makers Lego have donated bricks and boats from its latest sets for a fun children’s activity at the Portsmouth-based National Museum of the Royal Navy.

On Wednesday, youngsters can make their own nautical creations at the historic dockyard.

The designs will be entered into a competition, which will be judged by the commanding officer of HMS Victory.

Winners will be announced on the National Museum of the Royal Navy website the following day.

Graham Dobbin, the deputy director general for the museum, said: ‘We are thrilled to have the support of Lego to make this activity even more exciting.

‘Let the building commence.’

The event is open to all ages and no tickets are required.

It takes place from 11am until 1pm and 2pm until 4pm.
