Horace deal for Jurassic Coast schools!
Horace the Pliosaur will come and visit your school for a special Dippy Discount rate this Summer Term. He will be hosted by his groom Joe. Children will get to brush his teeth, learn about Deep Time, the Pliosaur’s age and habitat. Then they will handle local fossils and take a quick tour inside his belly. All children (up to around 350) can get the ‘Horace Experience’ in the one day.
Iggy makes lots of new friends at Camp Bestival… “I loved the fascinated children’s faces watching in awe” (Festival organiser)
July 17th and 23rd – Mary Anning, Professors Buckland and Cuvier celebrate the brand new Anning Wing at Lyme Regis Museum..
