Have a roarsome summer at The Lexicon!

The Lexicon is delighted to announce that the town centre will be hosting a ROARsome T-Rex Encounter this summer. From Friday, August 2 to Monday, August 26 2019, the town centre will be home to the UK’s largest animatronic dinosaur.

Watch your step… this incredible T-Rex, stands at an impressive 18-metre-long, 8-metres-high… and boasts a deafening roar, moving eyes, head and tail!

The T-Rex Encounter will open at 10.30am on Friday, August 2 2019 when Dean Lomax, internationally recognised multi-award-winning palaeontologist, presenter and author will countdown to ROAR! Visitors young and old will be mesmerised by the breath-taking sight waiting for them on The Avenue, outside Marks & Spencer and H&M. 

And if that wasn’t enough, on Friday morning, visitors will also have the opportunity to hear more about the T-Rex and ask Dean questions about the time of the dinosaurs – as well as being able to see a number of fascinating fossils!

If you’re looking for something different to do during the holidays, this ROARsome sight is not to be missed! In addition to the T-Rex spectacle, The Lexicon will also be running a series of captivating, town-wide activities designed to bring plenty of dino-themed fun to Bracknell throughout August. Keep the whole family entertained with a Dino Treasure Hunt, Dino School and plenty of Jurassic themed fun.

Sue Boor, head of marketing at The Lexicon says: “We are so excited to bring the T-Rex Encounter to The Lexicon. It’s a first for us, and a first for the South East bringing a HUGE talking point to the town centre. With so many activities on offer, as well as dino-themed menus, cinema screenings and plenty of surprises instore, we’re looking forward to embracing the Jurassic period at The Lexicon this summer.”

For shoppers looking for more to explore… activities for the children start with the Dinosaur Treasure Hunt on Friday, August 2 and the community can get ready to rock the dinosaur at The Lexicon Proms on Saturday, August 3.
