Fresh from Edinburgh Festival success, West End hit show Dinosaur Zoo is back at the Mayflower Theatre from today until Sunday.

Australian-based theatre company Erth use puppetry to bring dinosaurs to life in a 50 minute show suitable for ages three and older.

Dinosaur Zoo introduces audiences to a range of creatures from baby dinosaurs to teeth-gnashing giants, including a carnivorous theropod known as the ‘Australovenator’, Australia’s version of the American T-Rex.

Brave audience members who want to get up close with the dinosaurs are invited up on stage to assist the zoo keepers – but be warned, many of these reptiles are not as tame as they seem.

Each performance concludes with a post-show ‘meat & greet’ session with the chance to meet the dinosaurs in person.

Erth has established itself as one of Australia’s leading theatre companies, having performed at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympics in 2000.

Tickets: £13.50, visit or call (023) 8071 1811.
