As you know, we’ve teamed up with Bristol Zoo in support of its terror-ific Summer-long “Dinomania” campaign and are sponsoring the climbable Pachyrhinosaurus.
In celebration of this, we’ve hidden toy dinosaurs in 10 of our stores & restaurants for you to find this holiday. So, as you, your family and friends shop around Clarks Village, pick up a dino activity booklet, look out for our scaly friends and fill in the trail map to be in with a chance of winning a Bristol Zoo family pass (valid for as many visits as you can squeeze in before 30 March 2018).
To get you into the pre-historic period, we’ve come up with our favourite ten dinosaur facts…
