Various dinosaur themed events are being held in Rochdale to celebrate the long-awaited arrival of Dippy the Dinosaur.
Dippy - a 21m-long plaster-of-Paris cast of a Diplodocus carnegii skeleton - will be at Number One Riverside in Rochdale town centre between 10 February and 28 June 2020, as part of Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure.
Known to millions from its usual home in the Natural History Museum in London, the 292-bone skeleton will be used in Rochdale as the centrepiece of a display that will highlight local natural history and nature collections.
It is free to see Dippy and visit the Dippy exhibition.
Entry fee: Free, but booking is required
