DINOSAURS will be stomping through the streets of Bracknell Town giving shoppers an opportunity to find out more about the prehistoric species.

The ROARsome T-Rex encounter will be making an appearance at The Lexicon from August 2 to 26.

A massive 18 metre long, eight metre high T-Rex with life-like features will be captivating shoppers as they go about their daily business.

The dinosaur experience will be open at 10.30am on August 2, and Dean Lomax, an internationally renowned palaeontologist will countdown the Roar.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to hear more about the T-Rex and ask Dean questions about the time of the Jurassic era.

Sue Boor, head of marketing at The Lexicon, said: "“We are so excited to bring the T-Rex Encounter to The Lexicon.

"It is a first for us, and a first for the South East bringing a huge talking point to the town centre. "With so many activities on offer, as well as Dino-themed menus, cinema screenings and plenty of surprises in store, we’re looking forward to embracing the Jurassic period at The Lexicon this summer.”

The Lexicon will also be running a series of dinosaur themed activities throughout August, keeping families busy during the Summer holidays.

Children can get involved with a Dino treasure hunt and Dino School with lots of creative activities on offer.
