AWESOME prehistoric creatures will appear on stage as you’ve never seen them before when an amazing Dinosaur Zoo arrives at The Anvil on Tuesday, April 15 and Wednesday 16.  

Two shows will take place each day, at 11am and 2pm.

The Australian-based creators Erth use ingenious puppetry to bring dinosaurs to life in this interactive and imaginative live show, from cute baby dinos to teeth-gnashing giants, including a carnivorous theropod known as the Australovenator, based on the most complete meat-eating dinosaur skeleton found in Australia. 

Erth’s dinosaurs are unmistakably ‘alive’ – and mostly friendly! – in this fun and educational show.

Intrepid audience members brave enough to get up close to the dinosaurs are brought onto the stage to assist the Zoo Keeper in his/her daily tasks - but be warned - not all of these ravenous reptiles are as tame as they seem! 

Meet a menagerie of insects, mammals and dinosaurs in this truly amazing interactive experience.

Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo is funny but educational at the same time.  Audiences who see the show often don’t know what to expect; there is no real storyline – it is just like a live animal presentation. 

Each dinosaur comes with a back story about where it came from, what it ate and what made is special.  The show appeals to anyone aged five to 100. 

For those who aren't able to join the dinosaurs on stage, they will have the opportunity to meet them at the official ‘meet and greet’, which takes place at the end of each 50 minute show.

Tickets priced £13.50 are available from the box office on 01256 844244 or online at
