Stefan Gurney, Executive Director of Norwich Business Improvement District, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Break once again to bring the city back to life with this extraordinary artwork trail. The GoGo trails create a wonderful atmosphere in the city centre and offer a fantastic free attraction for people of all ages, particularly families. As a Presenting Partner, we’ve been lucky enough to have seen a sneak-peek of some of the new decorated dinosaurs, and can’t wait to see them gracing Norwich’s streets in all their glory – we’re particularly proud of Norwich BID’s T-Rex friend!’
Paul McCarthy, General Manager at Chantry Place, said: “Bringing colour, fun and beautiful art across Norwich this Summer, we are so excited to continue our support of Break and these fantastic trails, and our own T.rex we have sponsored looks tea-riffic! GoGoDiscover is such a fun way for people to explore Norwich, and some of its hidden and best loved gems, and put much needed smiles on people’s faces. Most importantly, we hope it raises vital funds for Break.”
The T.rex will be dotted across the city at locations including Riverside, Haymarket, The Forum and Cathedral Close, with trail maps and further details released nearer the time.
While the trail is free, people who have enjoyed the sculptures can donate to Break via text or on the website, so that Break can continue to transform futures and change the lives of vulnerable children and young people across the region.
