Retailers hoping to attract roaring trade

    DON’T be afraid, but life-size animatronic dinosaurs are coming to Tunbridge Wells this summer.

    The four-week free event Dino Live consists of a series of scenes located throughout Royal Victoria Place shopping centre, where the creatures will be displayed in environments replicating their natural habitats.

    The Tyrannosaurus Rex, Ceratosaurus, Iguanodon and the aptly-named Kentrosaurus will all feature.

    Visitors will be able to experience a spectacular journey which spans 250 million years.

    A spokesperson for Royal Victoria Place said: “It’s as close as anyone will get to experiencing these prehistoric creatures without having to join Doctor Who on one of his time travels.”
