Northfield Shopping Centre manager Pete Barber said: “Dinosaurs are something that constantly fascinates children  – especially with the new Jurassic Park  movie that’s just come out.

“We understand that it’s not easy to find things for children to do that are free, fun and close to hand, which is why we have arranged  this event for the school summer holidays.

“It’s a great way to get children interested in both science and art, and  I’m sure that there will be plenty of youngsters coming to Northfield Shopping Centre to take part.”

Northfield Shopping centre is home to more than 40 stores, from fashion, health and beauty to services and food and drink, and has more than 650 parking spaces.

  1. Took my five year old to the storytelling session today and he had a great time, maybe needs to be advertised more to draw children in, give out some free balloons to passers by or something, as they’re weren’t many children in there.
