The Dinosaurs are returning to Northampton town centre

The dinosaurs are back! Get ready for the roar as the giant beasts return to Northampton town centre

Europe’s biggest T Rex is returning to Northampton town centre, and he’s bringing a whole host of new friends with him.

Following in the giant footsteps of last summer’s hugely popular dinosaur festival, the Jurassic beasts will be returning for one day only on Saturday, April 23.

Ritchie the Raptor, Zeus the T Rex and Tank the Triceratops will once again be appearing in Market Square and Abington Street, with a host of activities lined up for young adventurers including an augmented reality Dino Trail available through the Explore Northampton app – giving families the chance to hunt down 10 friendly dinosaurs hidden around the town centre and grab a selfie with their favourite.

The free family fun day will be held from 11am to 4pm on Saturday, April 23.

There will also be a prize draw for the opportunity to win one of two family tickets for the Jurassic Earth performance at the Deco theatre on Saturday, July 30. Entries must be made in person on the day by downloading the entry form below and posting into the post box located in Grosvenor Shopping.
