After receiving thousands of 5 ⭐ reviews for their events, the award-winning Teach Rex team are delighted to announce they will be heading to rainton Arena with their Velociraptor show on 7th July!

 

The new show will delve into the jaws of one of the most iconic dinosaurs to ever roam the world – the VELOCIRAPTOR. Delivered by primary school teachers, the team will take the audience on an interactive, prehistoric journey, pinpointing misconceptions surrounding the velociraptor and the audience will learn how this iconic beast would have actually looked. Meet various Velociraptors and the only fully feathered velociraptor in the WORLD amongst others, giving the audience a realistic insight into these fascinating creatures.

Teach Rex uses life-like dinosaurs to perform their show, teaching children about the anatomy and life of one the most mesmerising creatures that have ever roamed our planet. The show is teamed with effects, music and gives children and their families the chance to get up close and personal with these fantastic, realistic creatures.

Children will be greeted by baby dinosaurs and given a ‘Dino Booklet’ which includes a variety of educational activities – all that is included in the price of a ticket, in this interactive educational experience delivered by teachers.

The show is suitable for children of all ages (3+ recommended) and has even proven to be extremely popular with adults.
