Dinasour Live! Go. It’s like Jurassic Park!!!

Astonishing (and remarkably life-like) dinosaurs that are going to make memories forever. Well done Royal & Derngate!

This is a quick review because it’s only on for one more day; we visited Bank Holiday Friday and if you have a dinosaur fan in the house YOU NEED TO GO! Thanks to Muddy’s Rachel Rose for taking her Mudlets along and reporting back immediately!

We use the word astonishing (and remarkably life-like) dinosaurs with hand on heart. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Triceratops, Giraffatitan, Microraptor and Segnosaurus will make your kids squeal with delight. The theatre was packed with pre-schoolers upwards and boy were they an excited lot. The show was completely engaging, and filled with lots of facts and giggles.

It’s run like an epic dinosaur show and tell, all led by the enthusiastic Miranda who talks you through the dinosaurs. Children were up and talking with the baby TRexs on the lead (just your average Friday activities!) and there was a huge buzz!

You think you’re seeing amazing Dinos to start with but the big ones are AWESOME in scale and even the grown ups were open mouthed. The biggest (I won’t spoil the surprise with what!) was pretty scary, but we actually managed to scare him off.

The show finished after around 50 minutes, so it’s the perfect length for young fans. We’ve said it before, but it’s another ace performance at Royal & Derngate. Double thumbs up all around from parents and mudlets, the perfect holiday treat.
There’s a special meet and greet after the show which offers all brave explorers the chance to make a new dinosaur friend. Don’t miss the entertaining and mind-expanding jurassic adventure, live on stage. Book for tomorrow before tickets become extinct!
