Why are we finding so many new dinosaurs? We’re in a golden age of discovery – and the fossils coming to light show dinosaurs were stranger, bigger, scarier and more diverse than we ever imagined.

Join us for an evening of discovery with John Pickrell, amateur palaeo-sleuth, award-winning journalist, the editor of Australian Geographic and the author of Flying Dinosaurs, as he takes us on a journey through some of this fascinating new science.

In his new book Weird Dinosaurs: The Strange New Fossils Challenging Everything We Thought We Knew, John sets out on a world tour of discoveries and meets the fossil hunters leading the charge, from outback Australia and the Gobi Desert to the savanna of Madagascar and frozen wastes of Antarctica.

6:30pm - Welcome drink
7pm - Lecture followed by book signing.
