The Iguanodon Restaurant

12:00 — 18:00

Shows at 12:50 and 16:30

We invite you to dine inside the belly of an Iguanodon!

Guests will feast on a julienne of joviality… Scandalous skulduggery… Fossil-fuelled fun…A dessert of dinosaur delight!

The Iguanodon Restaurant is an outdoor theatre performance for families inspired by a famous banqueting scene in a 35-foot Victorian iguanodon. Highly visual, funny, peculiar, it’s a 35 minute hilarious romp through 60 years of history and scientific discovery.

The story focuses on famous fossil discoveries and the birth of geology, travelling at rollicking speed from Lyme Regis in 1812 through the Kent and Sussex Weald before arriving, breathless, at Crystal Palace Park in 1853.

As the story unfolds eccentric characters emerge from history. They compete for fame, laying claim to the biggest and oldest dinosaur bones. They raise shocking new questions!

How come these creatures no longer exist? What does this tell us about the world we live in?

Blancmanges spin and pigeons fly from the pies in the Iguanodon Restaurant.

Suitable for ages 5+.
