School is out, but it seems that learning isn't just for the classroom as children flocked to Palace Shopping in Enfield to catch a glimpse of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The dinosaur was the main attraction at the free prehistoric-themed event organised by Palace Gardens and Palace Exchange shopping centres.

The eight foot tall, the rex was joined by a pair of newly hatched dinosaurs, Trixie the Triceratops and Barnabus the Brachiosaurus.

As well as the huge prehistoric models, there was a street performance from The Pree Hee Men who drove around in their Stone Age car complete with music and sound effects.

Little ones got creative at the prehistoric craft workshop, making their own woolly mammoths and sabre toothed tigers, cavemen and masks.
