by Lauren Abbott

Be prepared for some roarsome arrivals in Medway this summer.

Get up close to a Parasaurolophus, Stegosaurus, Dilophosaurus and T-Rex which can be visited for free at Hempstead Valley shopping centre from Monday (July 27) as part of its Become A Dino Explorer summer holiday event.

Visitors can have their pictures taken with the prehistoric creatures and take part in a raft of dinosaur themed activities which will also be on offer for the kids to enjoy. They include a dino hunt around the malls in search of clues with the chance to win some fabulous prizes.

Mark Rumfitt centre manager said: “We’ve turned the clock back by more than 400 million years with this new dinosaur trail and are bringing something that’s fun, exciting and educational to Hempstead Valley.”

Activities will be open throughout each day but adult supervision is required, says Hempstead Valley.
The dinosaurs will remain in the malls until Sunday, August 18. To learn more click here.
