Television star Andy Day will be bringing his musical dinosaur show Dino Raps to the Eden Project from October 12 to 15.

Children will be able to join dino-mad Andy for some interactive fun about all their favourite dinosaurs. There will be dancing, grooving and roaring in 30 minutes of rapping madness for all the family.

Andy hosts Andy’s Wild Adventures for CBeebies, made by the Natural History Unit in Bristol. After the success of the programme, Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures was made.

As well as presenting for CBeebies, Andy has performed many live shows and pantomimes over the years.

Andy, along with his comedy partner Mike James, toured up and down the UK with their shows Andy and Mike’s Big Box of Bananas and Andy and Mike’s Tick Tock Time Machine, which were sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival in 2009 and 2011. In 2009 he was nominated for a BAFTA in the Best Presenter category.

Marion Harrison, Eden Live Project Lead, said: “We are excited to have Andy and his fantastic musical dinosaur show back at Eden - it proved to be great entertainment for our visitors last time. We hope to see everyone singing and dancing along.”

All shows will take place three times a day in the Mediterranean Biome and all performances are included with Eden admission.

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the shows take place at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 5.15pm. On Saturday, the shows will take place at 10.30am, midday and 1.30pm.

On the weekday afternoons (October 12 to 14), visitors can treat their children to tea in the Mediterranean Terrace restaurant, which is close to where Andy will be performing. A child’s pizza or pasta plus ice cream will cost £6.
