Shoppers were in for a shock when a group of dinosaurs took over Houndshill Shopping Centre this week.

The fearsome beasts took to the shops ahead of their Dinosaur World Live show which kicked off at the Grand Theatre last night.

Andrew Howard, the Grand’s marketing manager said: “It was great to have the dinosaurs interacting with the public and giving the opportunity for families to interact with some of the great stars of the show. ”

Dinosaur World Live is on at 11am and 2pm today (Saturday, 21st April) and tomorrow (Sunday, 22nd April) and will see audiences joining the show’s intrepid explorers to discover a land before time and encounter remarkably lifelike prehistoric creatures.

The show is recommended for children aged three and over with tickets available on the Grand’s website at https://www.blackpoolgrand.co.uk/event/dinosaur-world-live/
