You can expect a huge T-Rex, a velociraptor, comedy caveman and more as it returns for its second year in the East Yorkshire city by the coast.

Steve Plater, the co-owner of Dinostar museum in Humber Street, said: “It was extraordinary last year. The number of people in Queen Victoria Square and also coming down to the Fruit Market to our museum was remarkable.”

The Dinostar owners will be looking to bring some of its interactive exhibits to the centre with Platter adding: “It was terrific fun for the city centre all round. This year we’ll have some new exhibits in our mini museum and I’m sure there’ll be some really exciting shows.

“We will be encouraging people to come and have a go at getting a hole in one on our green with the chance to win a ‘gold coin’ which will get one person in free for an 18-hole course with us. Ollie the orangutan is very much looking forward to meeting the dinosaurs and will feel very at home with the Dino handlers!”

Kathryn Shillito, HullBID Executive Director, said: “Dino Day was a first for us last year and you could say it was a roaring success! It attracted huge crowds and everybody joined in the fun.

“The retail, food and beverage businesses did really well from it last year and they’ll be looking to build on that this year because they’ll have a much better idea of what to expect.“Also this year there are more city centre businesses taking part and that’s great because it shows they recognise the benefits for business from putting on these big events which pull in the crowds and generate business for everybody.”
