The Lost World – Outdoor Theatre Sunday 16 July Dosthill Park 3pm £9, £6 concessions, £25 family, under 2s free (ticket needed)

Prehistoric thrills, monster laughs and life-size dinosaurs abound in the must-see show of the summer! Performed by award winning Illyria. Four intrepid explorers, led by the redoubtable Professor Challenger, travel to an uncharted plateau in South America. They find flora and fauna beyond their wildest dreams, become involved in tribal warfare between apemen and indigenous humans, and encounter terrifying dinosaurs previously believed to be extinct. But when their camera is destroyed in an accident, what evidence can they produce to prove that these creatures actually exist? Unless, of course, they bring live specimens back to London in “unbreakable” crates to reveal to an astounded public. What could possibly go wrong?

Recommended for older children and their families.
