ITV’s Expert Palaeontologist on ‘Dinosaur Britain’, and scientist at the University of Manchester Dean Lomax, is heading down to Cannon Hall Farm to investigate Prehistoric entertainment at Jurassic FarmFest, Saturday 12th August, as part of the immersive event, which includes a cinema screening of 90s cult classic, Jurassic Park.

Dean, commented: “It’s great to see that Canon Hall is bringing palaeontology to life. The dinosaur events will make snippets of the prehistoric world accessible to all, and spark interest and questions, with fun for all the family. I’m looking forward to discovering exactly what they have in store!”


Jurassic creatures will come to life in a pre-historic adventure for all ages this summer, as an immersive program featuring animatronics, live music, interactive performances, and the chance to excavate fossils alongside outdoor cinema screenings of classic dinosaur movies is unveiled 10-13th August, at Cannon Hall Farm in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

Tricksy the T-Rex

Transforming the farm into a dinosaur activity trail with a dinosaur safari, raptor races and Jurassic obstacle challenge, ticket holders will step into a land before time and be taken on an adventure amongst roaming T-Rex.

Inner explorers will be unleashed as the audience is advised to come dressed ready for the paleontologist’s camp, or go back in time as cave person, ready to strike a pose in the Photo-saur-us Booth! Creators of the Dinosaur adventure, Sneaky Experience, actively encourage audience participation throughout, with their motto: “Don’t just watch it. Be part of it!”

If you’re feeling a little braver, you can walk with dinosaurs as you follow in the footsteps of the ice-age beasts at Jurassic FarmFest, 6-11pm, August 12th, recommended for Adults and children accompanied by parents (PG rating). Alongside some stomping live music, get your lab goggles ready for Spielberg’s 1993 multi-award-winning classic Jurassic Park.

Jurassic Farm Fest is presented for one night, and one night only, so don’t miss out on your chance to travel back to a time when Dinosaurs ruled the world and Jeff Goldblum’s hair was super shiny.

Full details which tease at the entertainment, will be released on the Dino-farm: Live Dinosaur Adventure and  Jurassic Farm Fest Facebook Page but in true Sneaky Experience style, the sensational line-up will only be fully revealed, once inside, as the gates close behind you.
