Stan, the Museum's T.rex

We are very excited to announce that Stan the T.rex will be saying his first words on Sat 22 Nov at our Dinosaurs Big Saturday with the help of popular broadcaster Mark Radcliffe and Talking Statues. Talking Statues is a project run by Sing London, who have teamed up with Audible.co.uk to find voices for four statues across London and Manchester, including Stan the T.rex. See our News and Press section or the Talking Statues website to find out more.
