DINOSAURS warmed up their roar for lunchtime crowds at Gloucester Green yesterday ahead of their new show at Oxford Playhouse.

Using puppetry the giant and life-like Segnosaurus and baby T. Rex stomped their way into yesterday's market to get shoppers excited for Dinosaur World Live.

The Oxford Times:

The show, which will be taking over Oxford Playhouse on May 29 and 30, promises Jurassic adventure for the whole family.

Using puppetry to bring the mighty reptiles to the stage, Dinosaur World Live presents a host of impressive prehistoric creatures including favourites the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops.

Playhouse spokeswoman Ellie Harman said: "With enough awe and wonder for little ones aged three and over, but with plenty of excitement for the older ones, this interactive production is a Jurassic adventure that promises to delight the whole family."

Tickets cost £15 but are soon to become extinct.
