Dinosaur Petting Zoo
The Dinosaur Petting Zoo came to town as part of NNF 2012!
Norwich Puppet Theatre and Norfolk and Norwich Festival worked together to deliver an exciting school package incorporating shadow puppet workshops, stimulating research packs and performances of Erth's Dinosaur Petting Zoo.
Resources for the project can be accessed via the links near the bottom of this page.
Erth brought its unique Dinosaur Petting Zoo all the way from Australia. Children had the opportunity to help feed, water and care for life-like prehistoric marvels in this fabulous show. But they had to watch out, as not all the dinosaurs were as tame as they might seem!
Schools across Norfolk were invited to participate in this exciting event.
In April 2012, pupils across the County experienced Dinosaur Shadow Puppet making sessions, delivered by Norwich Puppet Theatre. The workshops were part of the build-up to seeing the dinosaurs themselves when Erth toured the Dinosaur Petting Zoo in May 2012 and conducted performances for schools throughout the region.
