The award-winning show Walking with Dinosaurs has returned to the 02 Arena.

The hit show, based on the BAFTA award-winning TV series, features 20 life size dinosaurs, including favourites such as the T Rex, Stegosaurus and Brachiosaurus.

The show is back due to popular demand after being watched by more than seven million people in more than 200 cities across the world.

A huge hit with families, this production merges scientific accuracy, high-tech animatronic puppetry, and realism to help children appreciate these colossal creatures.

Audiences will learn how they evolved during their 200 million year domination of life on earth and find out about the huge climatic and tectonic changes that took place.

Oceans form, volcanoes erupt, a forest catches fire - all leading to the impact of the massive comet, which struck the earth, and forced their extinction.

The £12.5million arena spectacle, which has been seen by more than seven million people in 206 cities across the world, is directed by Scott Faris.

Resident Director of Walking with Dinosaurs Ian Waller: "We are seeing life size dinosaurs for the first time. We have the biggest skeletons ever found on record. We've made them into life size dinosaurs."
