The Dinosaurs Are Coming To Northampton Town Centre

24 July @ 11:00 am - 14 August @ 4:00 pm


It’s not every day you come face-to-face with a triceratops and a T Rex but shoppers heading into Northampton town centre on Saturday, July 24, will get up close and personal with the giant beasts as part of a free family fun day.

A collection of dinosaurs will appear throughout Market Square, Abington Street, and other parts of the town centre as Northampton will be transported back to the Jurassic era, with a host of activities lined up for young adventurers.

Characters including Ritchie the Raptor, Zeus the T Rex and Tank the Triceratops will entertain the crowds on July 24 with retailers and food outlets backing the event in the three-week period from 24 July to August 14 with ‘Dino diner meal deals’ in cafes and restaurants and other food outlets, special offers and ticketed activities.

The dinosaurs will initially be in town between 11am and 4pm on Saturday, July 24, before returning for a special performance at The Deco theatre on August 13 and 14.

The event is the first to be staged by the BID as part of a refreshed calendar activities to coincide with the relaxing of COVID-19 restrictions.
