Families and dinosaur enthusiasts across Nottingham are certain of ‘dino-mite’ thrills this half term.

Dinosaurs of China has welcomed over one hundred thousand visitors since the beginning of July, with hundreds of families and children expected to descend on Wollaton Hall and Lakeside Arts for a week of fun activities and special events before the exhibition closes its doors for the final time.

A Dino Club Day on 29th October will allow visitors to partake in a free fun day presenting a range of children’s activities – 11pm and 3pm – including fossil making, face painting, Chinese dancing, dino-photo booth and constructing miniature dinosaur worlds. ‘Hawks of Steele’ will showcase birds of prey.

The ground shakers to feathered flyers exhibition has wowed visitors with dinosaurs and fossils never before seen outside of Asia. Wollaton Hall hosts the main exhibition with Nottingham University’s, Lakeside Arts offering free accompanying workshops and events.

Dr Adam Smith, Curator at Nottingham’s Natural History Museum, Wollaton Hall said: “The Dinosaurs of China exhibition has been a once in a lifetime experience for everyone in Nottingham and it’s great to see so many visitors in awe of the dinosaur collection.
