As part of the Eastgate Summer Festival 2016, the Travelling Natural History Museum will continue to entertain young and old alike with their free Dinosaur Exhibition until Sunday 14. Within the shopping centre there are sand pits where fossils can be discovered (or porridge oats for the younger children). There is also a colouring area the with the opportunity to get face-to-face with some of the lifelike prehistoric models.
The team will be back next week, from Thursday 18 to Saturday 20, with their free Marine exhibition in the same place, so be sure to visit that also.
