Over the six months, the company said trading had been in line with market expectations and that it had secured multi-year contracts with a value of £4.4mln for 2019 and £1.3mln for 2020.

The group also said it had seen “considerable growth” in its BRICKLIVE touring business, while the number of brick models used in its shows had risen to 690 compared to 650 at the end of March.

The number of themed touring assets, which numbered 12 as of 13 June, was expected to grow to 15 by the end of the year.

Ciclitira said the priority for the rest of 2019 was the expansion of the BRICKLIVE brand across both Europe and America as well as expanding the group’s merchandise ranges and touring business.

“Looking ahead, we remain focused on delivering our ambitious strategic goals and hope to exceed market expectations, creating long term value for our shareholders", he added.

In early trading the shares were 5% higher at 50.9p.
