Lewes Fossil Festival: Iguanodon Restaurant

September 25, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

FREE

Emerald Ant presents the Iguandon Restaurant street theatre based in a 35ft model dinosaur. It’s 1853, New Year’s Eve in Crystal Palace Park, and preparations are afoot for a sumptuous banquet in a highly
unusual venue; inside the concrete mould of an iguanodon. As the story of ‘Iggy’ unfolds, historical characters come to life; the first fossil hunters and ‘Undergroundologists’of England. They are amazed and confused at their discoveries. Vying for fame; they lay claim to strange, massive old bones. Dinosaurs are very hot news; their discoveries are patronised by the rich, and discussed by the famous, but what do they mean and what is the stone beneath our feet telling us about the world? As new, unsettling ideas of extinction and evolution emerge, blancmanges spin and pigeons fly from pies in the Iguanodon Restaurant! Part of the Lewes Fossil Festival weekend 24/25 Sept 2016 celebrating the life and works of Lewes’ own Gideon Mantell. Suitable for all ages. 12 NOON & 2.30PM (SHOW RUNS FOR
ABOUT 35 MINS)
