From the makers of the sell-out hit Dinosaur Zoo comes an interactive voyage into the ocean!

Deep below the surface, submerged below time, swam some of the world’s most amazing prehistoric marine reptiles! The team at Erth have spent years scouring the seven seas, collecting playful creatures for their giant aquarium.

What fascinating friends will we come across on our journey to the bottom of the ocean? Let’s find out together, as we dive into some of nature’s greatest mysteries.

What does a Plesiosaurs skin feel like? How big are a Kronosaurus teeth? And do Kimberella even wear shoes? Our skilled puppet handlers will be able to answer all these questions and more in this extraordinary theatre experience.

Connecting young audiences to the real science of palaeontology, this fun, educational and unique performance will delight audiences aged 4 and up.
