Dinosaur Petting Zoo
The Dinosaur Petting Zoo is coming to town as part of NNF 2012!
Norwich Puppet Theatre and Norfolk and Norwich Festival are working together to deliver an exciting school package incorporating shadow puppet workshops, stimulating research packs and performances of Erth's Dinosaur Petting Zoo.
Participating schools can access resources for the project via the links near the bottom of this page.
Erth brings its unique Dinosaur Petting Zoo all the way from Australia. Children will have the opportunity to help feed, water and care for life-like prehistoric marvels in this fabulous show. But watch out, not all the dinosaurs are as tame as they might seem!
Schools across Norfolk have been invited to participate in this exciting event.
In April, pupils across the County experienced Dinosaur Shadow Puppet making sessions, delivered by Norwich Puppet Theatre. The workshops are part of the build-up to seeing the dinosaurs themselves when Erth tour the Dinosaur Petting Zoo in May and conduct performances for schools throughout the region.
Also, throughout the Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2012, look out for Norwich Puppet Theatre's drop-in making sessions in Chapelfield Gardens and out and about in Swanton Morley and Kings Lynn.
