Join Teach Rex for a special appearance at ‘Escape to Freight Island’. After a series of sell-out UK shows in over 8 cities and 12 venues, Teach Rex has announced that it will be bringing its interactive dinosaur show to the families of Manchester.

Teach Rex uses life-like dinosaurs to perform their 50-minute show, teaching children about the anatomy and life of the most mesmerising creatures that have ever roamed our planet, the TREX! The show is teamed with effects, music and gives children and their families the chance to get up close and personal with these fantastic, realistic beasts.

The show is suitable for children of all ages (3+ recommended)  and has even proven to be extremely popular with adults. The educational part of the show runs for approximately 45 minutes followed by a dinosaur meet and greet when families can get photographs next to the beasts! 

Children will be greeted by baby dinosaurs and given a ‘Dino Booklet’ which includes a variety of educational activities. You will also be provided with coloured crayons,  all that is included in the price of a ticket, in this educational experience delivered by teachers. 

Brunch wiil be available from the indoor food vendors and the bar opens at 10am. Food vendors will be announced in the run up to the event. If families want to stay at the venue for lunch they'd need to book via the ETFI website.
