Prehistoric fun for all the family!

The Alhambra Shopping Centre is calling upon all intrepid explorers to visit next month for a surprise of Jurassic proportions!

All dinosaur fans, big and small, will not want to miss out on the centre’s two weeks’ worth of roaring fun from the 1st to the 11th of August, including the Alhambrasaurus Rex, craft workshops, a reptile zoo, a ‘real life’ raptor and competitions!

The free event line-up is as follows:

1st – 10th August

Take a selfie with the Alhambrasaurus Rex and check in on the Alhambra’s Facebook page to be in with a chance of winning tickets to see Walking with Dinosaurs at Sheffield Arena on Saturday 11th August (7pm).

Saturday 4th August (11am – 3pm)

Meet the closest things to dinosaurs we have around today, with snakes, lizards and other cretaceous creatures at the centre’s reptile zoo. Also have your face painted like a dinosaur, or get a glitter tattoo!

Wednesday 8th and Friday 10th August (11am – 3pm)

Get crafty with Dino workshops where youngsters will be able to make and colour masks, wooden models and create sand art, along with face painting and glitter tattoos.

Saturday 11th August (at intervals between 11am – 3pm)

Come and meet Raptor, the only animatronic Velociraptor in the country. Raptor will be roaring into the centre for fun and educational shows along with her friend Toppa the Tiny Triceratops.

Steph Higham, Marketing Manager of the Alhambra said: “We are all really excited for our dinosaur themed events. It will provide free family fun for all, with lots to see and do, plus a great competition to enter!

“We hope to see many intrepid explorers big and small outside Iceland here in the centre for all the activities!”
