Dino Dig is back! Join us on a walk through the woodlands of Heaton Park as we journey back to a time when dinosaurs were still roaming. We will be searching for traces of dinosaur activity. Expect scratch marks, dino eggs, footprints and maybe even some roars. Our explorers will then complete a small fossil dig before heading back to our studio for dinosaur pot painting which they can then take home as a memento of their day.
