Calling all Dinosaur Fans!
Get yourself into Northampton town centre on 24th of July as the dinosaurs are coming!
There are going to be dinosaurs in Northampton, roaming the streets between 11am and 4pm on Saturday 24th July.
It is all part of a family fun day organised by Northampton Town Centre Business Improvement District (BID) – a group run by business owners to make Northampton a better place to live, shop and work.
The dinosaurs will be stomping the Marketplace, Abington Street and other areas. You can expect to meet Ritchie the Raptor, Zeus the T Rex and Tank the Triceratops!
Along with this fun experience, local businesses will be running offers for the following 3 weeks (until August 14th). You can expect some Jurassic meal deals, plus other special offers and ticketed events.
One of the events expected is a 30 minute 360 degree immersive video experience that transports visitors back in time through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. This can be pre-booked in the Dino Dome.
There will also be an interactive dinosaur trail around the town centre that can be accessed using the Explore Northants app. On your way through the trail you can augment 10 friendly dinosaurs!
If, after all this you still haven’t had your fill of dinosaurs madness then head to The Deco Theatre on August 13th or 14th for Jurassic Earth Live. This is a 75 minute, interactive show featuring characters such as 22ft long Zeus the T-Rex, Raptor, Spinosaurus, Tank the Triceratops as well as some cute baby dinosaurs.
There will also be the opportunity to get some ranger training and a photo with the dinosaurs. Check out the video below.
