Philippa Baines is a dinosaur.
At least that’s what she’s telling people as she raps her way around west Kent to raise awareness about climate change and mass extinction.
Dressed in a T-Rex costume, the 26-year-old copy-writing student from Winkhurst Green entertained crowds in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells this Bank Holiday weekend.
Miss Baines performed songs about global warming, raising issues of sustainability, energy sources and recycling.
She said: “Dinosaurs are one of the most obvious symbols of extinction.
“I thought I’d combine being a T-Rex with a fun and entertaining way to communicate an important message – rap.”
She added: “The reaction was great. Children loved me but so did the parents.
“I was terrified to start with.
“In the costume I was beyond 6ft, and thought I’d be intimidating but I think my slightly cartoonish face put people at ease.”
