Which dinosaur had teeth as big as a banana? Which dinosaur weighed the same as 10,000 cats? And what could a CHICKEN possibly be doing in The Great Big Dinosaur Show?!


Join poet Simon Mole and musician Gecko for a family show full of poems, raps and songs about all your favourite prehistoric protagonists (and some you haven’t heard of yet!). Come and get your groove on to some Jurassic Classics! 


The show is inspired by Simon Mole’s 4th book; A First Book of Dinosaurs, illustrated by Matt Hunt, published by Walker Books in September 2023.
