You can step back in time this summer when an exhibition with dinosaurs made from LEGO bricks comes to Norwich.

Brick Dinos is a free exhibition that will take place in The Forum from July 19 until August 30 and it has been created by artist Warren Elsmore and his team.

It follows the success of Brick Wonders, also by Mr Elsmore, at the venue in 2017, which featured 500,000 LEGO bricks and took visitors on a journey of amazing sites from around the world.

It welcomed more than 80,000 visitors to The Forum and it is hoped that it will bring a similar boost this year.

His latest creation Brick Dinos, which has been developed in conjunction with palaeontologists, will be both educational and entertaining.

Mr Elsmore said: "We’re really excited to bring Brick Dinos to Norwich.

"We’ve worked hard with The Forum to make sure that we can deliver an exciting and safe experience for all the family."

The exhibition will also feature a range of prehistoric creatures, from tiny insects to a four-metre-long raptor-like Masiakasaurus.

Visitors to Norwich will be able to enjoy a complete dinosaur themed day out this summer, with Dippy at the Cathedral and the GoGoDiscover T.Rex trail.

"We have been fortunate to receive support from the UK government’s Cultural Recovery Fund to help us restart our cultural events and activity this summer and it is fantastic that we are able to offer this free exhibition, which we’re sure will be popular for children and adults alike."

Brick Dinos will be open from 10am to 5pm daily with free entry, but online pre-booking is required at theforumnorwich.co.uk - this opens from Monday, July 5.
