Dinosaurs take over Malham

[Saturday 20 May 2006]

IT MAY be hard to imagine now but Malham was once basking under a warm Coral sea - indeed the tiny sea creatures that form the foundations of the limestone cove and iconic pavements date back to this time - and later this month the Yorkshire Dales village is set to head back to its Jurassic past.

Dinosaurs are returning to Dales village for the first time in 65 million years as the annual Malhamdale Safari gets underway. Running throughout the half-term week from 28th May to 4th June the Safari will be offering a whole host of attractions for all the family.

Mums, Dads and Grandparents are being invited to bring the family along and see the imaginative displays of dinosaurs and animals; on top of that there is the chance to scour the village and find all the hidden Dinosaur eggs.

Other highlights throughout the week include live music, duck races, Dinosaur facts, African drummers and a Flintstone Football game.

If all that's not enough, you could try your hand at a game of Llama Poo Bingo. 2 Llama's will be released into the field to see which one poo's first, but more importantly… where!
