Dinosaur takeover day


Suitable for families

Dinosaurs are taking over The Word for one day only!

Join us for a totally ‘roarsome’ day of dino-mania where you will get the chance to meet REX – a Tyrannosaurus Rex, as well as get involved in a range of crafts and attend an amazing interactive show all about the pre-historic creatures.
