T-Rex Encounter

Come and see the UK’s largest animatronic dinosaur

There’s more to The Lexicon than meets the eye this summer, with the launch of the T-Rex Encounter from 2 to 26 August. Join us for this unmissable event, where you’ll see the UK’s largest animatronic dinosaur! Our lifelike T-Rex is 18 metres long, 8 metres tall and moves and roars too… You do not want to miss it.
At 10:30am on Friday 2 August, internationally recognised multi-award-winning palaeontologist, presenter and author, Dr Dean Lomax will be officially awakening our T-Rex on The Avenue, outside Marks & Spencer and H&M. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask Dean any questions about dinosaurs and see a number of fascinating fossils!
Enjoy three weeks of fun for all the family, with a variety of dinosaur-themed activities taking place across the town centre, including our Dinosaur Hunt, Dino School in association with The Look Out Discovery Centre and the chance to meet our very own baby dinosaur.
