Dinosaurs on the loose in Bradford this weekend

Dinosaurs are on the loose in Bradford this weekend.

Australian theatre company Erth presents an array of prehistoric creatures, from baby dinos to teeth-gnashing giants in a show called Dinosaur Zoo.

The dinosaurs – including a carnivorous theropod known as the Australovenator, based on the most complete meat-eating dinosaur skeleton found in Australia – are operated by skilled puppeteers and audience members are invited to get up close to the creatures. Director Scott Wright said: “It’s much like you might see at a zoo or a wildlife park, but we have dinosaurs, from small babies to some of the largest ever found. We teach the audience aspects of animal husbandry and invite some members of the audience onto the stage to assist us with feeding and caring for our dinosaurs.”

There is also an opportunity to meet the dinosaurs at ‘meet and greet’ sessions at the end of each show.

Dinosaur Zoo is on at St George’s Hall until tomorrow. The box office is on (01274) 432000.
