Hand feed a dinosaur, Hancock Museum, Newcastle 14-15 August


‘Tiny’ is coming to Newcastle!

Come face to face with prehistory and hand-feed a walking interactive real-size baby stegosaurus ‘Tiny’ at the Great North Museum : Hancock in Newcastle on 14 and 15 August.

A combination of live sound, animatronics and puppetry bring ‘Tiny’ the Stegosaurus to life – she is expressive, interactive and full of character and charm.

‘Tiny’ is created by ‘extreme quad pod puppetry’ and is a giant car sized puppet that has been created to perfectly mimic the now extinct creatures.

Dr Sarah Glynn , Manager of the Great North Museum : Hancock said,

“We are very excited for ‘Tiny’ to come and visit the museum – it is a truly magical experience to meet this amazing creature.

“Visitors young and old will be astounded at the authenticity of Tiny – and hopefully we will inspire some budding palaeontologists! “

The event is free; no booking required and is suitable for all ages – adults, children and young people.  Tiny will give three performances at 11am – 11.25am, 1pm – 1.25 pm and 2pm – 2.25pm.

‘Tiny’ comes with her palaeontologist who presents a lively and informative natural history show. Audiences are encouraged to ‘get tactile’ with the dinosaur and to have a go at being palaeontologists themselves.

‘Tiny’ is one of the highlights of a packed free summer family event programme planned at the Great North Museum : Hancock. Visit  for more details.
