Crystal Palace, New Year’s Eve 1853. A sumptuous banquet is underway inside a life-sized Iguanodon model. Historical characters emerge; early ‘undergroundologists’ – England’s fossil finders. Dinosaurs are hot news; captivating the rich and the famous, but what do they mean? As new, unsettling ideas of extinction and evolution emerge, puddings spin and birds fly from pies in the Iguanodon Restaurant!
Performances at 12 noon and 2pm.
Performed by Emerald Ant www.emeraldant.com with funding from Arts Council England
Throughout the day, discover fossils and dinosaurs with the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

IF Oxford is operating a Pay What You Decide (PWYD) ticketing system. This works by enabling you to pre-book events without paying for a ticket beforehand. Afterwards, you have the opportunity to pay what you decide you want to, or can afford. If you prefer, you can make a donation to IF Oxford when you book. All funds raised go towards next year’s Festival.
