Roarsome fun as dino trail comes to Leamington

FAMILIES are invited to put on their explorer hats and have a roarsome time stomping around Leamington town centre as part of a dinosaur-filled half term.

A dino trail is being held in Leamington between Saturday May 25 and Sunday June 2, with a host of prizes to be won.

Dinomania will also be joining the action, with its mini dinosaur museum and roaming dinosaurs visiting the Upper Mall of Royal Priors Shopping Centre on Monday May 27 to Wednesday 29 from 11am to 4pm.

Visitors will be able to join the Dinomania rangers and get up close to a range of realistic dinosaurs and hear how the world would have appeared tens of millions of years ago.

The dino trail will see visitors tasked with keeping their eyes peeled in a fun-filled mission where they hunt for hidden letters in the windows of 12 shops, cafes and restaurants across the town centre which spell out the name of a mighty dinosaur.

Those who correctly uncover the name of the dinosaur will be entered into a prize draw to be in with a chance of winning the grand prize of a £100 voucher to spend in the town or one of four runners up prizes.

The businesses taking part are Boston Tea Party, Flying Tiger, Leamington Therapy Centre, Waf Waf Café, The Entertainer, 49 Parade, Oxfam Books & Music, Western Furnishing, Jojo Maman Bébé, Wingers, Karak Chaii and The Cakery.

Entry forms are available from participating businesses and the Upper Mall of Royal Priors Shopping Centre as well as online at

Completed entries can be posted at the Dino post box located at Coffee Break based at the Upper Mall at Royal Priors Shopping Centre, with the closing date for all entries being Sunday June 2.

The dinosaur-themed half term is being organised by BID Leamington.
