Dinosaur exhibition on show at Southsea Castle

Have your say

DINOSAURS have been spotted at Southsea Castle as part of an art project touring Portsmouth.

The ‘Southsea-saurus’ work was on show at Victorious Festival and proved popular, so it was decided to showcase some of the larger sculptures at the castle.

A selection of the sculptures is currently in the moat and it is hoped they will be able to appear at other city locations.

Also on display at the castle is an island model of Portsmouth from the Victorious event.

Tory culture boss Linda Symes said: ‘We’re always looking for different ways to use the space we have at our museums and the popularity of these dinosaurs at Victorious made this a no-brainer.

She added: ‘Hopefully it will give more people the chance to see these fantastic sculptures, and it would be great if we can get them to appear at other locations in the city in the future.’

This project was led by Benjamin Clabon and digital artist Jon Adams, both associate artists of New Theatre Royal’s Creative Lab.
