This weekend is the 60th Dolls' House and Miniatures Exhibition in Birmingham.

It started out life at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in 1983 but will fill one of the main halls at the National Exhibition Centre today and tomorrow.

It's a chance for enthusiasts to display their intricate models - some taking months to complete and costing thousands of pounds to construct.
