Crystal Palace Dinosaurs Conservation Open Day 10 December
Sat 10 December 2016, 14:00 – 15:00 GMT
Bring the family down to Crystal Palace Park to get up close and personal with the famous Crystal Palace Dinosaurs. During major conservation works on the swimming statues, Friends of Crystal Palace Dinosaurs (FCPD), Skillington Workshop and Bromley Council invite you to see the famous sculptures as you’ve never seen them before…
When you arrive at the Information Centre, the FCPD conservation team will provide an introduction to the sculptures, their design and construction and how they’re being restored. You can even roll your sleeves up and try your hand at some conservation techniques!
You’ll then join a small group for a 30-minute tour of the Dinosaur island and an explanation of the conservation works from Skillington Workshop. Although this is a family-friendly activity, access to the worksite is via a small, steep, muddy path and hill. Unfortunately it is not suitable for wheelchairs, buggies or very small children. Visitors are advised to wear sturdy footwear for the tour.
Meet at the Crystal Palace Park Information Centre for your tour.
Please note that there is a small booking fee for all tickets to ensure attendance.
Max group size 4 people. Tickets should also be booked for children.
