Walking With Dinosaurs returns with a 2012/13 UK/ Ireland arena tour
The arena spectacular based on the award-winning BBC series is set to walk the land once again with a huge tour which kicks off in Belfast this autumn, tickets on sale Friday 27th April
Honestly, you wait 65 million years to see dinosaurs pound up and down the streets of Britain and then it happens twice.
Every now and then, television produces a documentary series which transcends genres and blurs the usual lines between audiences; a show that everyone talks about. In the UK, these documentaries are most frequently found on the BBC and Walking With Dinosaurs was another success to rank alongside the likes of The Living Planet, Life on Earth and Blue Planet. The sheer scale of the dinosaur story meant the BBC used all of its creative muscle to bring the creatures to the screen and similar ingenuity has been at work developing the arena version.
At a cost of £12.5 million, the production needed to be a hit and that is exactly what BBC Worldwide got when Walking With Dinosaurs was first staged (in Australia) in 2007. With global audiences of 7 million and acclaimed as one of the planet's foremost live spectaculars, Walking With Dinosaurs is now heading out on a second UK tour.
Walking With Dinosaurs returns with a series of dates in Belfast from 14th September 2012 followed by Dublin and then a mainland UK run beginning at The O2 in Greenwich from 26th December to 6th January 2013. After London, there are arena runs in Sheffield, Manchester, Birmingham and more, before the final set of dates announced so far at the Liverpool Echo Arena from 22nd to 27th May 2013. This includes a second London run at Wembley Arena from 1st to 6th May 2013.
We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 27th April 2012, priced from £21.75 for the London dates and £18.75 for the regional shows. Tickets for Dublin start at €24.90.
