Award-winning Walking with Dinosaurs returns
Date Posted: 23/04/12
Walking with Dinosaurs - The Arena Spectacular, the stage version of the award-winning BBC television series, returns to UK arenas next year.
Prehistory fanatics and budding palaeontologists in the capital should book London hotels near the O2 Arena to experience the dramatic theatrical event from Wednesday, December 26th to Sunday, January 6th.
The show then moves to Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle and Nottingham before finishing at Liverpool's Echo Arena between Wednesday, May 22nd and Monday, May 27th.
Walking with Dinosaurs will tell the 200-million-year story of dinosaurs' dominance of life on earth. They will walk, roar and even fight for survival in front of the audience's own eyes.
There will be 20 dinosaurs made by renowned designers, who developed them in collaboration with expert scientists, stomping around the set.
Audiences will no doubt be most excited by the terrifying yet awe-inspiring life-sized Tyrannosaurus-rex.
The original six-part BBC documentary series was broadcast in 1999 and narrated by Kenneth Branagh.
