Plus, there will be a guest appearance on Sunday 23rd July and Saturday 5th August from a real-life palaeontologist, Manchester University’s Dr Dean Lomax.The famed palaeontologist will be discussing all-things dinosaurs as well as answering questions, showcasing some of his fossil collection and there will even be an opportunity for children to bring their own fossils to show Dr Lomax, getting the chance to hear more about them as well as have them aged
