Dinosaur Detectives in rural Lancashire

An exciting new dinosaur show for children is coming to two Lancashire village halls this October.

“Dinosaur Detectives”, from Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre, will visit Tockholes Village Hall on Saturday 29 October at 6.45pm, followed by a performance at Calder Vale Village Hall on Sunday 30 October at 3.30pm. Tickets for the show, which is suitable for ages 5+ and families, can be booked directly from the venues by calling 07889 105969 for Tockholes or 01995 606278 for Calder Vale.

Follow the Dinosaur Detectives as they search for clues about the past.

Remember when people thought the earth was flat? Once upon a time enormous creatures walked the earth, creatures that became known in Victorian times as Dinosaurs.

The Dinosaur Detectives follow a fascinating journey of discovery, fun and conflict surrounding the first fossil finds of Mary Anning, William Buckland and Gideon Mantell. A show with puppetry combined with projection and shadow theatre creates their fascinating world.

Speaking ahead of the performances, Clydebuilt’s Leigh McCalister said:

“The ‘Dinosaur Detectives’ are currently studying bones and fossils in Alberta, Canada, before visiting Lancashire with our fantastic and constantly evolving show about the discovery of dinosaur bones. Clydebuilt are so looking forward to bringing our show to the county with Spot On Rural Touring. This is a great historical story for all ages from 5 all the way up to 95 years and beyond!”

The shows form part of Spot On Lancashire’s autumn season of touring, taking professional arts events to rural venues and libraries across the county.
