Educational centre Fossils Galore in nearby March is hosting a family fun day next month to celebrate the opening of a new expansion.
The event will be held on 12 April from 10am to 5pm at Fossils Galore, next to the former Blockbusters rental store in March (map).
The highlight of the event is BBC Walking With Dinosaurs presenter Nigel Marven making an appearance to open the new expansion. Marven has also presented shows such as Untamed China, Penguin Safari and Prehistoric Park, and has been described as “a time travelling zoologist”.
Other highlights throughout the day include craft stalls, panning for gold, fossil and gem hunting sandpits, geode breaking, dinosaur hunting and face painting. There’s also a newly opened tea room for refreshments and snacks.
A spokesperson for Fossils Galore said the event is guaranteed to be a great time for all: “It promises to be a great family fun day out. Meet Nigel, learn about dinosaurs on your doorstep, about the sea monsters that once roamed shallow tropical seas which covered this area and about Cambridgeshire’s volcanic past.”
The event is free to attend, although some actives may incur a cost.
