Dinosaur Detectives

Oct 9, 3:00pm

Swallow Theatre

Follow the Dinosaur Detectives as they search for clues about the past. Once upon a time enormous creatures walked the earth, creatures that became known in Victorian times as dinosaurs. Dinosaur Detectives is a family-friendly show from Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre, a leading Scottish puppet theatre company, using puppetry, projection and shadow theatre that takes the audience on a fascinating journey of discovery, fun and conflict surrounding the first fossil finds. Watch the trailer at vimeo.com/163868337 to get a feel for this fantastic show. A popular add-on to the show is a fossil table where the audience can study and hold exhibits including dinosaur vertebrae and dinosaur poo! Recommended age 5+ but we think this show will delight any age! Anyone with a sense of fun and adventure is welcome along to join in on this informative afternoon. Tickets cost £5.50 and can be booked online (no booking fee) at www.swallowtheatre.co.uk or by phoning 01988 850368.
