Jurassic invasion in the lead up to Victorious festival

Have your say

DINOSAURS are invading Portsmouth as part of a new art project.

As part of the ‘Southsea-saurus’ project children and families can make their own dinosaur and place it on a model of Portsea Island.

The project will be running all week on the first floor of the Portsmouth Guildhall and will move to the children’s area at the Victorious Festival at the weekend.

Organiser Benjamin Clabon, from the New Theatre Royal’s Creative Lab, said the aim was to bring a dose of Jurassic fun to the city.

Mr Clabon said it followed a similar project at last year’s festival.

He said: ‘The festival organisers said they really loved the idea and asked us to come back with something even bigger this year.

‘You can build the Southsea-saurus and put it on the island.’

After the festival, the dinosaurs will become an art installation to be displayed at the Sellers Coffee House in Kent Road, Southsea.

Instructions to make your own dinosaur are online at newtheatreroyal.com/creative-lab-current-projects/southsea-saurus-at-victorious-festival.

The workshops are on at the Guildhall every day from 10am to 4pm.
