What's happening?

Join award-winning authors and illustrator Jill Michelle Smith and Jennifer Watson for their egg-citing new Easter trail around Dereham Windmill, in the heart of Norfolk. Have fun finding 10 Extraordinary Extinct™ dinosaurs before collecting your roaring reward!

Discover some fascinating fossil facts as you explore the grounds surrounding the historic windmill and complete your trail sheet to receive your explorer's sticker of honour. Each child will also receive an eco-friendly 'dinosaur egg' to decorate at our craft tables and take home as a souvenir of your adventures.

This roaring fun event is ideal for families with children of all ages. Tickets can also be purchased with a pre-paid Extraordinary Extinct™ children's book of your choice (RRP £7.99) signed by the authors, for the special price of £10. Choose from An A-Z of Extraordinary Extinct Creatures, Extraordinary Extinct™ Crystal Palace Dinosaurs or Extraordinary Extinct™ Prehistoric Minibeasts: A First Guide to Fossils on the day. Please present your ticket as proof of purchase when collecting your book.

Dinosaur Egg Hunt (per child) | £3.50

Dinosaur Egg Hunt (per child) + Signed Book | £10

Free parking for the event will be at Dereham Neatherd High School, NR20 3AX. A limited number of disabled parking bays are available at the windmill itself. Refreshments will be available from the Partea Hut tearoom on site, as well as an accessible toilet and baby changing facilities. We recommend bringing a picnic blanket to enjoy your refreshments, as we expect to be busy and all park benches and seating could be in high demand. 

£1 from every ticket is donated to Dereham Windmill (registered charity no. 1108549), to help look after the Grade II listed building and historic site for future generations to enjoy. There is no charge for family members accompanying a participating child. Admission to go inside the windmill is not included in the ticket price, but can be purchased on the door.
