Sharks live!

As part of our Magnificent Marine half term week join the shark experts from local organisation SharkStuff for a thrilling day for all shark-lovers.

SharkStuff Live! starts with a presentation about sharks, both local and worldwide, and the threats they face from the ocean’s most feared predator, man! This is followed by a rare opportunity to witness a live demonstration dissection of a dead shark for a close up view of the anatomy of these highly evolved animals, looking at what makes sharks so supremely adapted as marine hunters. You can also take a look at the SharkStuff display with lots of sharky bits and pieces for people to handle and learn about. There will also be experts on hand to answer your questions.

If you and your family are fascinated by sharks this is an event not to be missed! While it is suitable for both adults and children, be aware that the dissection will take place live, in the room, with film transmitted to a big screen for viewing. The audience will not take an active part in the dissection.

Booking required. Cost £5 per person or £4 per person for family groups of 3 or more. Session times: 10am – 12 and 1.30pm – 3.30pm

Call 01297 300 390 to book. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
