Norwich School T-Rex sculpture roars into Norwich!

28 June 2022

Norwich School is thrilled to once again be taking part in Break's GoGoDiscover trail: A family-friendly sculpture trail of prehistoric proportions, stomping onto the streets of Norwich and Norfolk between Monday 27 June and Saturday 10 September 2022!

Our very own Norwich School T-Rex, Tyra-Norvy-Saurus (Norvy for short), is back on the Upper Close for everyone to discover. By visiting our sculpture, you will be in with a chance of unlocking a special reward using the new GoGoDiscover app!

This year, Norvy is joined by two new smaller 'Breakasaurus' sculptures, designed by our Lower School pupils.

This year's GoGoDiscover trail sees an expansion of last year’s 21-strong dinosaur trail, which accompanied the arrival of the Natural History Museum’s legendary Dippy the Diplodocus to Norwich. GoGoDiscover22 features 79 individually designed sculptures comprising 55 T.rex and 24 Steppe Mammoths, each decorated by artists from across the country.

GoGoDiscover is delivered by East Anglian charity Break, in partnership with Wild in Art. The presenting partners for the project are Norwich BID, Chantry Place and ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure.

The project is hoped to raise valuable funds for Break, which makes life better for children and young people who are on the edge of care, in care and leaving care.

Pete Marron, GoGo Project Manager comments: “The ferocious T.rex and mysterious mammoth have captivated children’s imaginations for years, which is why we’re so excited to bring this prehistoric squad of sculptures to Norfolk this summer.

“We hope that by delivering a fun, family day out across the county we can capture the imaginations of dinosaur hunters and mammoth explorers of all ages; while at the same time raising much-needed funds to make life better for young adults leaving care.”
