Walking with Dinosaurs - The Arena Spectacular is brought to the U.K. by Global Creatures, headed by CEO Carmen Pavlovic, in association with BBC Worldwide. Pavlovic said, “The BBC Series was a brilliant blend of special effects, escapism, excitement and information.  In order to bring this TV event into the third dimension on stage with life-size dinosaurs, we created a £12.5 million spectacle so immense that it can only fit into arenas." 
A landmark in family entertainment, Walking with Dinosaurs has been seen by over 7m people in a staggering 206 cities across the world.  Their phenomenal global success is credited to the pioneering work of its long-serving and passionate production team. Bringing to life 20 to-scale dinosaurs night after night, this technological feat is of epic proportions.
