What insurance will I require?It is a requirement of entry that you have adequate insurance to cover your participation on the event. We will require a copy of valid insurance before travel. We also recommend that you apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), as the NHS will cover most medical care when traveling in Europe. You can apply for an EHIC at your local post office.

Dinosaurs! Prehistoric thrills, monster laughs and life-size dinosaurs abound in the must see show of the summer!  Illyria has an unmatched reputation for innovation in the open-air touring theatre sector, where they are the first company to tackle a show in this genre and of this scope.   Four intrepid explorers, led by the redoubtable Professor Challenger, travel to an uncharted plateau in South America following a few scant directions scribbled in a sketch book.  They find flora and fauna beyond their wildest dreams, become involved in tribal warfare between apemen and indigenous humans, and encounter terrifying dinosaurs previously believed to be extinct.  But when their camera is destroyed in an accident what evidence can they produce to prove that these creatures actually exist? Unless, of course, they bring live specimens back to London in “unbreakable” crates to reveal to an astounded public.  What could possibly go wrong? Recommended for children aged 5 and over and their families.            Running time: 1 hour 50 minutes including 20 minute interval. Doors open 5.30pm. (Bring your own low backed seating, blanket and a cushion). This is an outdoor event. Cancellation only in the event of hurricane when performance will be rescheduled. Tickets are non-refundable. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
