T. rex: The Killer Question, the Natural History Museum’s touring exhibition due to be shown at Peterborough Cathedral in July and August 2020, has been postponed until summer 2021.
The exhibition will now be at the Cathedral from Monday, July 19 to Monday, August 30 2021, coinciding with the school summer holidays, just as it would have done this year.
Tickets for the exhibition went on sale at the end of February, and already over 1000 have been sold. The total number of visitors was expected to match the 35,000 people who came to see Luke Jerram’s Gaia artwork at the Cathedral in summer 2019.
The exhibition includes a 12-meter-long static model of a T. rex as well as a life-size T. rex skeleton and nine animatronic dinosaur models.
The Cathedral will contact those who had booked tickets. Bookings will automatically be transferred to the new dates or customers can request a refund.
The Cathedral is asking those who wish to cancel to consider donating their ticket money to help offset the significant fall in income the Catehdral has suffered as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
