    “This is our 3rd year working with Big Foot Events for our Dinosaur Weekend and we are looking forward to working with them again in 2020!  The Dinosaurs look fantastic and are of a very high quality. The way they come to life captures the attention of both children and adults! The Rangers always stay in character and are great at talking to the crowds. We booked the dinosaurs with Vicky who was a great help and was always quick to respond.  I would thoroughly recommend hiring the dinosaurs and working with Big Foot Events.”

    – Wellington Country Park Berkshire

    “What can I say?  The dinosaurs were brilliant.  Everyone loved them.  The large T-Rex went around the outside of the building knocking on windows just before the pupils were dismissed.  The screams of delight (and a bit of fear) were heard all over the school.  When he came out for the event he was surrounded by children and adults alike.  I must say your rangers were wonderful too.  They were so personable and capable.  As it was the hottest day of the year they did a fantastic job in the costume giving the full time allocated.  The babies were a great hit also – not as scary as T-Rex so the more timid children enjoyed petting them. The dinosaur dome was also very popular, with a queue outside each time I passed. Thanks again for a wonderful show.  Your team certainly helped our family event to be the best yet as many parents commented.”

    – Gwladys Street Nursery School Liverpool

    “Big Local Thurnscoe is always looking out for new ways to engage with residents and our community events are the perfect way to do this. Our latest Dinosaur Day was a ROARing success thanks mainly to T-Rex and the baby dinosaurs who delighted all of the families present. We are very grateful to Big Foot who were easy to deal with and very professional on the day itself. We would certainly recommend them to anyone hoping to make a BIG impact!”

    – Alison, Big Local Thurnscoe

    “I just wanted to say how spectacular you all are! From the professional emails, to the fantastic operators and dinosaurs! I cannot put into words how wonderful and special today has been for Nevaeh and all of us! Thank you so much!”

    – Natalie, Birthday Party, Spain

    “A massive thank you to all the team for a great Easter weekend! The Dino Eggsploration event was a huge success and we now have many other centres and venues contacting us for information as they would like to imitate the event, so we will be sure to send across your contact details!”

    – Michelle, Botany Bay

    “Our dinosaur visit was just wonderful. The team were brilliant. They were very professional and worked very well with the children, setting the scene and entertaining everyone. All the children (and staff) were completely awestruck by the dinosaurs and though some were slightly nervous everyone wanted to meet them and enjoyed watching the interaction between the keeper and the dinosaurs. The children haven’t stopped talking about the day and all left very excited to share what they had seen with Mum and Dads (though we aren’t sure if they believed who visited us!) The work the children did after the visit was also brilliant. I would highly recommend the experience to everyone.”

    – Rebecca, Westgate Primary

    “We just wanted to say a big thank you to Dave and Mike for Andrew’s 7th birthday party this morning. The T Rex was a massive hit and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Andrew felt very important holding his lead! They managed the crowd of 40 children really well and all I had to do was the food. I actually enjoyed the party, which not many people can say about running a Child’s party! Thank you very much, and thank you for Andrew’s lovely gift.”

    – Helen, Andrew’s 7th Birthday Party, Oxford

    “Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a fantastic day with T-Rex and the baby dinosaurs on Tuesday 6th March. All the staff were very excited in anticipation of the day but the arrival of T-Rex was way beyond everyone’s expectations! To see the thrill on the children’s faces when he unexpectedly arrived in the hall during assembly, was magical and something they will remember for many years to come.

    Mike and Dave were brilliant in every respect! The presentation was highly entertaining and appropriate for all of the children from Year R to Year 6. Their ability to ensure everyone gained something from the experience, was commendable and the children have not stopped talking about the day since.

    The baby dinosaurs were an added bonus for the Year R children (and the teachers too!) and reassured the children that dinosaurs can indeed be very friendly! Thank you so much!”

    – Veronica, Head Teacher at Hawley Primary School

    “Just a message to say thanks so much for providing Mike and Dave last night in the Garage, Glasgow. The Dinosaur theatrics went down a treat and the guys were awesome.”

    – Chris Kelman, The Garage, Glasgow

    “Just wanted to say how pleased we were with Rex the Dinosaur on Saturday. Magnus and all his friends loved it as indeed did the parents! In general I felt from the first phone call to Big Foot Events everything was so professional. On the actual day, pre costume, Kevin and his partner looked smart & professional wearing their Big Foot tops. Kevin very much put me at ease by explaining the plan of action to me and taking the lead with the entertainment which was most reassuring.
    Thank you to for Magnus’ gift which he was so pleased with. I will be recommending Big Foot to everyone. ”

    – Christine Nixon, Magnus’ 5th Birthday Party, Chichester

    “We have had a fantastic half term working with Rex and the baby dinosaurs. Every event had a great turn out with crowds of excited children waiting to see Rex. The rangers were professional, funny and hard working. They were really flexible to the different needs of each venue which was really helpful.We will definitely work with Big Foot again,”

    – Fiona, House PR

    “It was amazing he absolutely loved it. I must say the 2 gentleman that came were fantastic”

    – Gareth, Isacc’s 4th Birthday Party

    “The weekend went really well and as always the big T-rex was a big hit! The team was great and interacted really well with our visitors. From start to finish it has been really well organised. Booking was easy and efficient and the team turned up bright and early ready for what the day would throw at them. We have used you before and would continue to use you again if we throw another event. It worked well for us, receiving all the information before the event was a big help!”

    – Emily Thorpe, Winchester Science Centre

    “Everything went very well, The T Rex was great everyone loved it. Operators were great too everything went very smoothly. Same goes with service I’ve booked everything with Vicky and she was very helpful with everything.”

    – Guy Hauben, Throwback Events, Clapham Grand

    “WOW they were incredible, the Rangers were amazing and everyone was blown away!! Arthur hasn’t stopped talking about them!! I honestly cannot thank the guys enough, they were amazing, they made all the children feel special, we had no tears and all the children (and adults) loved them!! Even I was stroking the Dinosaur babies as if they were real!! Not sure how we are going to top this party next year!!
    Thanks for all your help, everyone has been so helpful and you made my son and his friends’ year!”

    – Holly, Arthur’s 3rd Birthday, Leicestershire

    “Thank you so much for making our party extra special, everyone commented on how amazing the T Rex Dinosaur was and about how lovely the keeper was.”

    – Tia Demetriou, Riverstone, London

    “The guys were amazing. They were a huge hit at the party. I would highly recommend the T Rex Dinosaurs.”

    – Darren, The RDS, Dublin

    “We had a fantastic morning with the dinosaurs and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. Rex was amazing and the rangers were very professional throughout. The baby dinosaurs had the children in the infants class mesmerised! Thank you!”

    – Fiona, South Hylton Primary Academy, Sunderland

    “The best part of the day was when he knocked the man over because it was very hilarious. He was really funny when he did the 360 turn. I thought Rex was awesome and very super! Also I loved it when he roared to the crowd. The whole school was screaming with joy. He was terrific! We would like to say thank you for an amazing, super day. We loved it!”

    – Ada Fuller, aged 6, Woodhouse West Primary School

    “Rex was outstanding and I loved it when he did the 360 spin because it was cool and funny. It was the best day of my life! He was a friendly dinosaur and he was really enjoyable and fantastic. Everybody in Woodhouse West loved Rex and they loved it when he knocked over his keeper and they all laughed out loud. The teachers and the children would rate Rex a ten out of ten. We would like to say thank you to Mike for an incredible, hilarious day. We loved it! It was awesome!”

    – Freya Donaghey, aged 6, Woodhouse West Primary School

    “This is the third occasion we have used Big Foot Events for the T.Rex walkabout for our annual Yorkshire Fossil Festival at the Rotunda Museum. As usual the crowds were wowed by him. The whole package of T.Rex and his keeper enhanced the offer we give to our visitors and this year we had the added bonus of the lovely baby dinosaurs which the children loved.’

    – Julie Baxter, SMT, Scarborough. September 2017

    “The day went better than expected, the crowds loved the T-Rex, he really made a difference to our event and lots of people came in especially to see him. I would definitely recommend.”

    – Marie AInsworth, South Somerset District Council. September 2017

    “Just dropping a note to say how well yesterday went at Parklands Primary school! The Safari Ranger & Operator were on fire again, and the headteacher didn’t stop thanking us all for being there at his school. Mark, the Safari Ranger, was especially brilliant in front of the whole school, particularly on our first set.”

    – Jess Barrans, Jurassic Kingdom

    “I just wanted to drop a note to say Mark & Gil were FABULOUS today! Such nice guys to work with all day, (to be honest it didn’t feel like work at all today!). Really nailed the brief, in terms of what Jurassic Kingdom is all about and are such lovely people to be with all day. I can’t praise them highly enough, so thanks for letting us once again work with yourselves! Thanks!”

    – Bananakick Marketing

    “The quality of the Dinosaur costume and Safari Rangers were such a high standard, and the baby dinosaurs were a huge hit with the kids! The large T-Rex was really impressive and proved to be a big hit with people of all ages! The two Safari Rangers did a great job of telling people about each of the dinosaurs and the whole activity helped to animate and draw footfall to the town centre. We will certainly book them again.”

    – Events & Place Making Manager – Harrow

    “We had never had anything like this at Golden Sands before so I was really unsure of how the day would go. My concerns soon disappeared when the team arrived! When they arrived  they had a good look around the holiday park to get their bearings and chatted about how the day would run. They made sure no child got left out which isn’t easy when there are 100+ children plus parents swarming a T-Rex! They were so friendly and the day ran very smoothly.

    I have had nothing but good feedback from our guests who are already asking me “when is the T-Rex back?””

    – Bourne Leisure – Goldensands

    “IT WAS BL***Y AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! We will definitely be having Rex back!!! A huge thanks from all the Leadership team, staff and children of St Luke’s! Rex even had a selfie taken with our local councillor! It really has made my birthday! I’m not ashamed to say I squealed with excitement when I saw the van – never mind Rex!!!”

    – Jamie Dickerson – St Luke’s Primary School

    “Just a quick note to thank all at Bigfoot for the fantastic T-Rex performance at the Port Arcades Shopping Centre on Saturday. From making the booking to the actual event we never failed to be impressed with the professionalism from Big Foot. On the Day Rex and his keeper delighted shoppers of all ages at the Centre, the crowd interaction was fantastic. Our shoppers are already asking when Rex will be back! We wouldn’t hesitate to book again or recommend Rex and Big Foot to anyone.”

    – Ports Arcade – Ellesmere Port

    “Thank you very much to Rex and the team for making my son’s birthday literally the best one ever! The guys were so friendly and helpful and went through everything with us to make sure we got exactly what we wanted from the visit. If anyone is in two minds about hiring Rex I can’t recommend him highly enough, it is something we will never forget and every child, big and small deserves to meet a real live dinosaur at least once!”

    – Helen May – Leicestershire

    “Thank you so much to Rex and the team for making the first day back to school this year such a memorable one. The children (and staff) absolutely loved it and the feedback we got from them and their parents was extremely positive. During the day the team were professional and really worked well with all our children. The writing that all the children did in response to the visit was amazing and it really inspired them to show off their writing skills.

    Quotes from the children’s writing include:
    ‘I had never seen a dinosaur before that was as realistic and brilliant as that was.’
    ‘It was very scary and it made me excited.’

    Thanks again for a fantastic morning.”

    – Andrea Bean – Deputy Head – Hungerford Primary School

    “Fab day at Maidstone Museum – Rex and the guys were amazing. Thanks for coming again.”

    – Maidstone Museum

    “Thank you for letting Rex visit our school yesterday! He was amazing! We can’t wait to start writing about him!”

    – Shadsworth School, Blackburn

    “Thank you so much for Oscar’s party on Sunday! He was so happy and they made Oscar feel so special!”

    – Oscar’s 5th Birthday

    “Just to let you know yesterday Rex was amazing! Blew everyone away and your man was so good with the kids!”

    – Toby’s 3rd Birthday

    “Just wanted to say another huge thank you for a fantastic night on Friday with the Dinosaur – please do pass on my thanks to your two guys for me who were both just wonderful. We were even busier than last year with we think around 2500 people during the night! It was so busy! But the museum was simply alive and buzzing! He was hugely popular and we’ve had some lovely feedback on Facebook already.”

    – The Collection, Lincolnshire

    “I would like to say a massive thank you to all the team involved in …the dinosaur evening. It generally was a fantastic experience. You have made a 5yr old smile like never before, you really have made his dreams come true. The activities that were provide were once again awesome. Xx Thankyou. Xx”

    – The Usher Gallery, Lincolnshire

    “We hired Rex this year for the South Wales Dog and Family fun day and we have to say he was fantastic and his keeper was great at interacting with the children and getting them involved. One little boy couldn’t wait to get back to school and tell his friends that dinosaurs aren’t extinct! Such a realistic looking dinosaur and our visitors loved him would definitely recommend! ”

    – South Wales Dog And Family Fun Day, Barry, Vale of Glamorgan

    “We absolutely loved the visit; it more than exceeding our expectations. The children were thoroughly gripped and enthralled and have produced some good writing and other pieces of work following on from the morning. I thought both members of your team were excellent and went above and beyond to ensure a great morning was had. You can’t come much closer to the real thing and what an amazing experience to be able to bring to the children…wow!”

    – All Saints CofE School, Marple, Stockport

    “We were extremely happy with the performance your team did for us for the opening weekend of Jurassic World, the 2 film screenings we had either side of Rex’s shows were almost sold out which on a Sunday afternoon was a great achievement and directly linked to the crowd pulled in by Rex.

    Your team were friendly, professional and obliging, offering to adapt the performance to suit our location and maximise the impact of the show. Rex at Genesis was also a big hit for us on social media with pictures, videos and status updates referring to Genesis and Rex being uploaded continuously throughout, which then boosted our tickets sales for the evening shows and screenings in the week.

    If the opportunity comes round again we will definitely look to book Rex and the team again.”

    – Genesis Cinema

    “Everyone had a wonderful time on Saturday, the T-Rex went down a storm – everyone absolutely loved it and he was a huge hit. We lost count of the number of visitors but we estimated we had between 1500 and 2000 throughout the event – which is absolutely amazing for us, family fun days usually attract 1000 and traditionally museum at night events no more than 250. We could not have asked for a better night. Shop sales went through the roof, our café did well – feedback from visitors was positive – it has done wonders for our museum. The two guys were great as well, everything just went to plan, it was perfect.

    I will certainly be recommending you and I’m sure we will be asking for you again at future events.

    Thanks again and please thank the guys too.”

    – The Collection – Lincolnshire

    “The T-Rex was amazing never seen anything like it! The operator was really good and so was his helper, the way he interacted with the crowd, especially the children, was great. We would love to book this again.”

    – Elmsleigh Shopping Centre

    “Rex was a great surprise for Jimmy’s birthday party here at the farm. The guests loved him and he’s quite a good dancer!”

    – Jimmy’s Farm, Ipswich

    “Rex was very professional! He left parents amazed and kids running away and towards him with excited screams! He really gave our event a new dimension and was well worth having at Kidfest this year. Big Foot events were flexible and easy to work with to tailor Rex’s performance to Kidfest. We loved having him, and even the staff left their posts to sneak a peak at Rex!”

    – Lisa Pearce – KIDFEST UK 2015

    “The T.Rex provided by Big Foot Events was one of the highlights of Maker Faire UK, he attracted excited crowds every time he came out, he’s incredibly realistic. Big Foot Events were extremely professional throughout and a pleasure to work with.”

    – Maker Faire – APRIL 2015

    “Thank you for making Freddie’s birthday party so spectacular!! Freddie didn’t want to sleep last night because he said, “This is the best day of my life and I don’t want it to be over!” Thanks again!”

    – Shannon and Peter – St Annes, Lancashire

    “And both children and parents got hands-on with exhibits, experiments and games while outdoors a giant walking spider and a life-size baby T-Rex drew crowds in Times Square.”

    Another hit with visitors was the moving T-Rex, created by Big Foot Events, which was realistic enough to make some children very nervous while others snapped up the chance to pose with it for a photograph.
    Michael Lawlor, an IT worker from Neville’s Cross in Durham, who brought along five-year-old son Aidan said: It’s fantastic.”

    “We weren’t expecting to see a dinosaur; I was more expecting to see technical stuff.””

    Last year, about 10,000 people visited the Maker Faire, and the Life’s director for science communication, Ian Simmons, hopes this year’s event has been even more popular.
    He said: “We’ve had more makers than ever and it’s great to see EepyBird as headliners, as well as other nice things like the Mantis hexapod robot and the T.Rex suit.”

    Newspaper Clippings from Chronicle Live, Newcastle

    “We hired the T Rex Dinosaur for our wedding and we absolutely did not regret it! The surprise and smiles on the guests’ faces – both children and adults – was definitely worth it! People are still talking about it now and the photographs look awesome! I certainly think it has created a lasting fun memory of our wedding that will be remembered for years to come! Thank you!”

    – Bride & Groom, Keely & Ben

    “First things first, your team is amazing! We had a few small points that we didn’t get right, and together as a team we solved them. All 4 of the lads talked us though all their needs and our needs and we went on from there. They changed the context of the show to what the customers wanted and made sure that our clients where involved with the show if they could be.

    They are 4 of the most kind, patient and hardworking team I’ve ever worked with, throughout organising the event, they worked well with my team and made sure it was an amazing day. It got harder for them as it started to rain, even though they could have said they need to stop, they made sure all was okay and went on. The lads are a massive credit to your company and you should be proud to have them on your books, well done guys! We will definitely be booking again and I would like to have the same lads if possible.

    Vicky, I would also like to say without your input and your patience, I don’t think we would have got this event up and running. You were always willing to try and help every time I phoned and asked questions about everything, I was in contact with you all the time and not once did it sound like you didn’t have time for my requests, you helped make this an amazing event. Your company should be very proud of their team, you are a credit, thank you so very much!”

    – Jen Sears – Open Farm Events Co-Ordinator

    “Rex was absolutely amazing, everyone was blown away by him! The adults were amazed and more importantly my son had the best time and his little face was priceless when rex came in the room. It brought tears to my mom’s eyes she was that overwhelmed by him. A big thanks to you and the guys!”

    – Nicola Merricks – Birmingham

    “Adam and all his friends (and all the grown ups too) had such a fantastic time! Rex is superb, and everyone loved the baby dinosaurs too! I hope Adam is dinosaur mad for many years to come so that we can book you again!”

    – Angie Bradford – Dalton

    We would like to give a huge Thanks to Mike and Team for the amazing Dinosaur Event last weekend.

    All our customers had a great time, and Mike was fantastic with the Children and Adults, he was really funny and had everyone interacting with him and Rex.
