Dinosaurs will once again roam the earth from tomorrow in a spectacular new theatrical arena show, which commences its U.K. tour next month. Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular, based on the award-winning BBC Television series will see real size dinosaurs come to life in what promises to be one of the most exciting and groundbreaking shows ever seen in the U.K.

Manchester's dino lovers can get the chance to come face-to-face with th baby T-Rex, amongst other big beasts at the MEN Arena.

The show originated in Australia, where after years of planning, it came to life at Sydney’s Acer Arena in January 2007. The show proved itself such a sensation, that the American tour was fast-tracked.  It began just three months after completing its sold out engagements in Australia.

Tim Haines, creator and producer of the original BBC series, which was seen by a worldwide audience of 700 million, serves as Project Consultant to Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular.  The series won six Emmy and three BAFTA Awards.

“At its core, The Arena Spectacular manages to do what the TV series did so successfully, which is to make people imagine they are looking at real dinosaurs.”

Walking With Dinosaurs visits the M.E.N from 29th July until 2nd August, 2009.
