EMMY-winning show brought to the stage
Narrated by Oscar-winning actor and director Kenneth Branagh, the six-part documentary series "Walking with Dinosaurs" first arrived on our screens at the turn of the century and instantly wowed audiences with its stunning CGI recreations of species that had long since become extinct. Created by Tim Haines, the BBC show went on to pick up two EMMY Awards and three BAFTAs, as well as launching a successful franchise which included various spin-offs, TV specials and a feature-length movie. In 2007 artistic director William ‘Bill’ May took the concept out on the road with an equally awe-inspiring stage show dubbed "Walking with Dinosaurs – The Live Experience". The production premiered in Australia before moving on to North America later that same year, and then to Europe and Asia in 2010. After wrapping up in New Zealand in 2011, the show took a lengthy break before returning to the UK stage for a 2018 tour.

A dazzling blend of animatronics, costumes and puppetry
Created in conjunction with The Creature Technology Company, the renamed "Walking with Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular" uses a blend of animatronics, costumes and puppetry to bring no fewer than sixteen dinosaurs from nine different species back to life. These include both an adult and adolescent form of the brachiosaurus, two plateosaurus hatchlings and three utahraptors, not to mention an adult and juvenile tyrannosaurus rex. Each of the creatures, which can weigh from twenty kilograms up to several tonnes, moves around the stage naturally as a narrator named Huxley informs the audience about its natural behaviours and attitudes. A whole host of visuals accompany the dinosaurs too, including a single rock that gradually blossoms into an array of trees and flowers, spectacular lighting and giant video screens.
