Get ready to GoGo on a Jurassic jaunt this Summer with Break and 21 large Tyrannosaurus-Rex sculptures from Monday 12th July until Saturday 11th September 2021 – and discover some colossal T.rex right here at Chantry Place.

The GoGoDiscover charity sculpture trail is delivered by East Anglian based children’s charity Break, in partnership with Wild in Art. Each T.rex has been decorated by local and national artists and sponsored by businesses from across the region.

We are proud to be a presenting partner of Break’s GoGoDiscover 2021 T.rex trail and will host three at the Centre, including our own tea-riffic T.rex we have sponsored, which you can discover on our Dining Terrace.

The 2021 family-friendly trail coincides with and celebrates another prehistoric visitor as the T.rex arrive just days before Dippy the Diplodocus at Norwich Cathedral.

We caught up with Paul McCarthy, our General Manager, who 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.”

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.

And, at the end of the summer, the GoGoDiscover dinosaurs won’t fade into extinction. They will return in the Summer of 2022, with even more T.rex in the city. While Steppe Mammoth sculptures, will take over all Norfolk and link to the discovery and exploration of Norfolk’s deep history coast.
