The annual Yorkshire Fossil Festival in Scarborough on September 22 to 24 is a weekend of free, fossil-focussed, family-friendly fings to do…(Ok, I’ll stop with the alliteration)
And it all takes place at the Rotunda, one of the world’s first purpose-built museums. Experts will be on hand to help you explore the fossils, flints, skeletons and skulls while T Rex will do walkabout around the town centre on Saturday and Sunday.
These amazing giant tree-people will be striding around outside the Rotunda over the weekend.
There will be four short sessions of SOAPBOX SCIENCE each day on the Spa Bridge – five to 10 minute talks by specialists sharing their passion for science and geology.
And then there is DINO STORYTELLING inside the Routnda with Adrian Spendlow throughout the weekend plus numerous displays and demostrations.
There are also a few fee-paying activities such as this one:
