Pack a picnic and head down to Preston Park this summer for an open-air theatre festival in the Bandstand Garden.
Sunday 20 August
Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg borrowed this title for the sequel to the book/film Jurassic Park. Thanks to them it now tells an audience exactly what they’re going to get: Dinosaurs!
Storytellers since before Homer have spun yarns about adventurers’ travels to strange lands and the monsters they meet there. But Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's version of the story transcends all previous versions because his adventurers were the first to bring the monsters back! He inspired the likes of King Kong, Godzilla, Alien and a host of other classic monster movies!
Four intrepid explorers, led by the redoubtable Professor Challenger, travel to an uncharted plateau in South America following a few scant directions scribbled in a sketch book. They find flora and fauna beyond their wildest dreams, become involved in tribal warfare between apemen and indigenous humans, and encounter terrifying dinosaurs previously believed to be extinct. But when their camera is destroyed in an accident what evidence can they produce to prove that these creatures actually exist? Unless, of course, they bring live specimens back to London in “unbreakable” crates to reveal to an astounded public. What could possibly go wrong?
Recommended for older children and their families.
