Dino Fest 2018 will be a weekend festival of specially created events for all budding dinosaur enthusiasts. Whether it is doing your own fossil dig, or taking it up a level with our Dino Discovery workshop, there will be plenty to get your T-Rex teeth into. Visitors can also “Meet the Minibeasts” in a reptile and insect handling workshop. All this comes as well as our bricktastic Brick Dinos exhibition.

Events are happening in conjunction with the Taste Whitehaven Festival, which is taking place on the same weekend. So when better to make a day or even a full weekend visit to Whitehaven.
