Dinosaur aficionado Doctor Ben Garrod is bringing his hit stage show to Norfolk this year.

Following a successful tour in 2017, So You Think You Know About Dinosaurs will be coming to King’s Lynn on Friday, March 9 at St George’s Guildhall.

With the help of TV film footage from BBC’s Planet Dinosaur and photos of his own palaeontological dinosaur digs, Doctor Garrod will take audiences on a prehistoric adventure through an interactive, educational and entertaining show.

Dr Garrod, who was born and raised in Great Yarmouth, has presented several television shows, including Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur, Hyper Evolution: Rise of the Robots, The Day the Dinosaurs Died and the award-winning six-part series Secrets of Bones.

The show will also be heading to Diss, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich. For tickets, visit:
