DINOSAURS, family theatre and a silent Halloween disco are all part of the fun at Skipton Town Hall for the school half-term holiday.

Following on from its sell-out shows in April, Teach Rex will be back with a new show on Saturday all about tyrannosaurus rex. Families will learn about the anatomy and life of one the most well know of dinosaurs. The show is teamed with effects and music and gives families the chance to get up close and personal with the realistic models.

Story Craft Theatre's Bat, Cackle, Pop, on Thursday, October 27 will bubble with all sorts of ghosts and ghouls, more silly than scary; and there will be two workshops with Yarndale - the annual wool festival in Skipton. The free drop-in events will show people simple knitting and crochet techniques.
