Relive the moment

Join us for a FREE monster mash up half term hangout!

Sat 21 - Sun 29 October

Are you ready for a monster mash-up?

This half term bring your little explorers on an adventure where they'll hang out with live dinos, hunt down monsters and get up close to real creepy crawly creatures. There's the chance to get creative with creepy craft sessions - just in time for Halloween. They'll be able to pull some spooky moves at the silent disco, Monster Mash Party and dance workshops - to name a few! And it's all FREE!

And to fill those rumbling tums there'll be loads of pop-up food vendors selling tasty treats.

The dinos are coming!

Sat 21 Oct 12-4pm

Ever wanted to walk with dinosaurs? Well, here's your chance! T Rex and his friends will be taking over Trafford Palazzo in the afternoon of Saturday 21 October.

They'll roam the mall with their ranger who will introduce kids and adults alike to these big friendly giants.

It's an experience not to be missed and a great photo opportunity too.
