ALL the things you thought you knew about dinosaurs are probably wrong, or at least that’s what visitors to a new family show presented by Ben Garrod at Newport Riverfront in February will see.
Myths of dinosaurs being green and scaly will be dispelled as TV presenter and scientific expert Ben will reveal almost all had feathers and instead of making terrifying, ferocious roars, many sounded more like garden birds.
So You Think You Know About Dinosaurs? will be a hands-on, fantastic fun-filled trip out for the whole family, giving children the chance to shout out what they already know and discover new strange Dino sights and sounds. From the longest, to the smallest, the tallest to the shortest, creepiest to cutest, Ben will have kids’ heads spinning with weird and wonderful stats and facts.
“We have all at some point had a fascination with dinosaurs or thought they’re pretty cool,” says Ben who co-presented the BBC One show Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur with the legendary wildlife TV presenter David Attenborough. “ I want to give families the chance to take everything they thought they knew about these ancient animals and discover the truth. We’ll be using the most recent and up to date studies to give audiences as many amazing and cool facts as we can. I have done talks where kids will stick up their hands and ask me questions I don’t know the answer to, so maybe I’ll learn something too.”
So You think you Know About dinosaurs? Takes place at Newport Riverfront on February 11. Visit tickets.newportlive.co.uk for ticket details.
