Children’s TV favourite Andy Day is sure to be a huge hit with youngsters when he pops into St Helens town centre next month.
The CBeebies star will be making an appearance in the town centre on Saturday 6 June (11am – 4pm), as part of a fun packed ‘Dino Day’ in Church Square. Andy will be performing two free children’s shows (45 minutes each) at 12 noon and 2pm and a ‘Meet & Greet’ session at 3.30pm.
Andy features in the hugely popular ‘Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures’ – the children’s series based on a museum worker with a passion for the pre-historic creatures.
Dino Day will feature some amazing dinosaur street entertainment. Reggie the Raptor – a 7ft high, 12ft long Utah Raptor – will be accompanied by an eccentric, white coated ‘professor’ who will be answering questions on dinosaurs. There will also be two fantastic stilt walking ‘Dino Riders’ roaming the town centre.
It’s all part of the build up to the release of the new Jurassic World movie on 11 June – and the council has teamed up with Smyths’ Toys and Cineworld St Helens to offer fantastic prizes. To be in with a chance to win ‘like’ our page www.facebook.com/whatsoninsthelens and find out more now!
