St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds set to welcome two dinosaurs for half-term family fun





A pair of dinosaurs are set to take over St Edmundsbury Cathedral this February half-term for a show that will teach and entertain the whole family.

Teach Rex will be at the Bury St Edmunds cathedral on February 21, showing visitors some baby dinosaurs as well as a pair of life-size animatronics, and a chance to have pictures with the prehistoric pair at the end of the show.

The two sessions on the day will be between 10am to 11.30am and 2pm to 3.30pm – tickets are £8.

Kim Judge, learning hub programme manager at the cathedral, said, “We are thrilled to welcome back Teach Rex to the cathedral this half-term.

“They put on a great show that’s full of excitement with learning points for both children and parents.

“We know that dinosaurs are always popular with young children, and this is a fantastic opportunity for them to engage with life-size versions.”
