Got a few dinosaur lovers in the family? Then there’s one event you need to be heading to in London this summer holiday, and that’s the epic production Dinosaur World Live at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre.
Here are five dino-tastic reasons why you won’t want to give this hugely entertaining stage show a miss.
There’s a history lesson in there
In fact, you’ll walk away having learnt quite a bit yourself! While Dinosaur World Live is designed to entertain, it’ll also teach your kids a fair bit about the journey of these fascinating prehistoric creatures. Through the course of the show, a guide will take you on an adventure through everything the dinosaurs experienced. What’s better than a little bit of gripping educational entertainment? While the show is recommended for ages 3+, it’s highly entertaining for all ages - you'll find yourself on the edge of your seat too! It’s quite unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
Spot some favourites from the dinosaur family
The Dinosaur World team have done a great job at including a wide range of dinosaurs throughout their show. Your kids will love spotting some of the ones they already recognise, including a large Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Segnosaurus, a Giraffatitan and a Triceratops.
Get up close and personal at the "meet and greet"
Yes, there’s a meet and greet at the end! Your kids will get the opportunity to get up close with the dino-stars after the show. There is a chance for them to interact with the puppets during a 15-minute meet and greet, which will be an experience they'll be talking about for weeks!
The puppets are remarkably lifelike
Now, when you hear the word puppets, you may have something a little less realistic in mind. Check out this dinosaur video of the show to see just how lifelike these puppets actually are.
There’s tons of interaction
One of the best parts of Dinosaur World Live is the level of interaction kids can have with the dinosaurs. Unlike other places in London where you can simply marvel at the sight of dinosaur sculptures, this show allows kids to actually engage with them. Whether your child is a major dino fan or not, it’s hard not to be impressed by the spectacle of the show and want to get involved!
