The world famous Diplodocus dinosaur cast from the Natural History Museum is on a national tour and he will arrive in Rochdale, his only North West stop, in February 2020. Dippy will be wowing visitors in Rochdale from 10 February 2020 to 28 June 2020.

Dippy’s visit to Rochdale is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the region and you could be part of it.

We’re looking for around 100 people to fill 4 different volunteer roles.
