Dinosaur World Live at The Lowry, Salford 16 — 18 February 2023 Tickets from £18.00 — Book now

Who knows their Triceratops from their Giraffatitan? And the difference between Microraptor and a Segnosaurus? I’m not sure I do, but if you have a little one who knows their dinosaurs better than their own family, Dinosaur World Live at The Lowry is a definite must-see.

Dress up in your best explorer attire and prepare to venture through unchartered territories as you track down a wonderful pre-historic world of dinosaurs. Meet an array of impressive creatures, including every child’s favourite formidable giant, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Recommended for ages 3 and up, your friendly tour guide will lead you through Dinosaur World Live, an island full of dinosaurs. The audience are given the opportunity to learn how to feed and keep the magnificent beasts clean, as well as learning a few roar-some educational facts along the way.

The dinosaurs are remarkably life-like and are operated by a talented team of puppeteers – and due to the detailed design of the dinosaurs and the ingenuity of their operators, it’s really easy to get completely immersed in the magic of the show. Make sure you are in fine voice though – you’ll need to make a lot of noise to scare off that T-Rex.

This Jurassic performance experience also hosts a special ‘meat’ and ‘greet’ after the show where all the audience members, grown-ups, and their little ones, can get up close and personal with the beasts.

Dinosaur World Live is the perfect show for all of the family – with the right balance of education and entertainment to keep little children (and adults) occupied for its 50-minute duration.
