Banbury Museum is set to unleash all kinds of reptilian mayhem as it prepares for another interactive family fun day next week.

The theme will be dinosaurs and the day-long event will take place at their Castle Quay location on Wednesday, July 26 from 11am until 4pm.

Children will be able to take part in all manner of reptilian-themed craft activities.

They will be able to ‘make their own fossil’, recreate a dinosaur trackway and even construct their very own shoe box dinosaur world complete with a T-Rex.

For the brave and adventurous there will be a dinosaur hunt along the ‘do you think he saw us’ trail, while those wishing to relax a little bit can take a break and listen to stories of when Dotty and Danny the Dinosaurs came to Banbury.

The event coincides with the remodelling of the Museum’s crafty corner which has had a Jurassic makeover with Dinosaur World.

Dinosaur World will be open from July 22 until September 9 and will allow children to make their very own dinosaurs, fossil collages, masks and more.

Entry to Dinosaur Day is £4 and allows each child to take part in five activities.

Dinosaur World will be open from 10.30am to 12.30am and 2pm-4pm during the above dates and is just £2 per child.

Drop-in activities during Dinosaur Day can be pre-booked with tickets available at the museum.
