A Jurassic Day Out In Cathedral Quarter

22/07/2023, 11am - 4pm Derby Cathedral Quarter

Can you hear booming footsteps? Is your cup of water vibrating? That’s because dinosaurs are on their way back to Derby’s Cathedral Quarter.

Europe’s largest dinosaur Zeus the T-Rex will be joined by Tank the Triceratops and Emily Bronty as the special guests in the city’s Market Place

The dinosaurs are the star attraction at ‘A Jurassic Day Out in Cathedral Quarter,’ a free family fun day, organised by the Cathedral Quarter BID (Business Improvement District).

The main arena will be situated in the Market Place, however, throughout the day smaller dinosaurs will be roaming the streets, providing lots of opportunities for meet and greets and dino selfies.

Children are invited to train as a Dino Ranger where they can dress up and learn how to look after and control the wild dinosaurs, before visiting The Hatchery to meet new-born baby dinosaurs and learn how to feed and care for them in their early stages of life.

Join us for a ‘roooarsome’ day in Cathedral Quarter.

RSVP Here!
