Schools in Northamptonshire have the chance to win an unforgettable school trip with exclusive access to the new Dinosaurs in the Park event at Delapré Abbey on July 20 before it opens to the public the following day.

This roaring competition to be the first to experience this dinosaur adventure is open to all primary schools, nurseries and playgroups with children under 12.

A lucky group will win up to 100 free places for children, plus essential adults and carers and £250 for travel.



Dinosaurs in the Park is a whole day of fun for the whole family. With a trail of 35 life-size moving and roaring dinosaurs, including big favorites T-Rex, Triceratops and Velociraptors, and many lesser-known species, the park also offers a range of free attractions and a food court all located in the beautiful gardens and woods of Delapré Abbey in Northampton.

The event runs from July 21 to August 7.

Sven Schmidt, co-founder of Dinosaurs in the Park, said: “The past two years have been very difficult for schools and other groups, with many not traveling during this time.

“We wanted to give one lucky school or group the chance to win a trip the kids will never forget – their very own dinosaur adventure.”

Richard Clinton, General Manager of Delapré Abbey, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Dinosaurs in the Park to Delapré Abbey and we look forward to welcoming the very first visitors to the event – our contest winners.

“What an amazing opportunity for a lucky school or group to win an unforgettable day and be able to tell their friends about their experience.”

To enter the contest, schools must visit the Dinosaurs in the Park website and say why they think their school should win the trip. The winning school will be announced on July 4.
