Something For The Weekend: Fri 4 – Sun 6 October

1. Dinosaur Zoo – Sat 5 October

Direct from Australia, Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo brings these awesome prehistoric creatures to the stage as you have never seen them before!

From cute baby dinos to teeth-gnashing giants, meet the most recent addition to the Dinosaur Zoo, a carnivorous theropod known as the Australovenator, the most complete meat-eating dinosaur skeleton yet found in Australia.

Observe these extraordinary life-like dinosaurs and watch them behave and move just like they really did – millions of years ago! But watch out – not all of these Jurassic giants are as tame as they seem!

The closest you can get to watching real dinosaurs.

‘It’s a rare and pleasurable work that manages technical brilliance, cultural insight and enchantment all in one go.’ Sydney Morning Herald

Suitable for ages 3+

2. Paul Foot – Sun 6 October

Paul Foot’s recent shows and tours have garnered a string of 5 star reviews and successive Barry Nominations at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Described by Chortle as “Inspired, surreal and incomprehensibly funny”, he is a true original, challenging comedic convention at every turn and delighting his connoisseurs. A BBC New Comedy Award and Daily Telegraph Open Mic winner, most recent UK TV credits include ”8 Out 10 Cats” Channel 4, “Never Mind The Buzzcocks” BBC2, “The Alternative Comedy Experience” Comedy Central and “Russell Howard’s Good News” BBC3.

“It’s baffling to me that Paul is not a household name in this country. His routines are like jazz clusters, loose hammocks, choked to the brim with jokes and ideas” Noel Fielding

“One of the highlights of this year’s Fringe…. Will leave your sides sore and your face wet with tears without every really fully appreciating why.“ Edinburgh Evening News
