Dino Island


The FREE Sandy Beach is back in Queens Square! Everyday throughout the summer holidays you can come and relax by the sand after some retail therapy. Take a seat with the sand between your toes whilst the little ones play and make sandcastles. Click here to join the Facebook event.

The beach will host various free events throughout the summer, including a giant animatronic dinosaur meet and greet, a fun and games day with real life explorers and regular face painting and crafts.

The launch party takes place on Saturday July 21st, when a giant moving T-Rex will be available to meet between 10am and 3pm, along with his baby dinosaur friends; Allen the Velociraptor, Bob the Triceratops and Rita the T-Rex. There will also be free face painting. Click here to join our Facebook Event. Click here to join the Facebook Event.

On Saturday August 11th two explorers will be heading to Dino Island between 10am and 4pm to engage mini explorers in various fun and games, including dinosaur egg and spoon races, dinosaur training, storytelling and temporary tattoos.

Pete the T-Rex and his friends will then return to Dino Island on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27th

For even more fun throughout the summer holidays, pick up a Dinosaur Explorers Trail from Kids Stuff Toys and hunt around the centre for the missing letters. Unscramble the word then head to The Works to claim a prize.

Bungee Trampolines, Water Zorbing and an ice cream cart will also be located next to Dino Island.
