The Roarsome Roadshow has announced it’s heading to Sunderland, giving people the chance to get up close and personal with life-size dinosaur models, from baby dinosaurs to cheeky raptors and a huge T-Rex.

Rangers will introduce each dinosaur for the audience at the afternoon event which is aimed at younger children, and people are encouraged to get pictures with the models.

It will take place at The Point in Holmeside on Sunday, September 5, and organisers say tickets are already selling fast.
