The mammoth effort to bring the GoGoDiscover trail to Norfolk’s streets prompted plenty of intrigued expressions from onlookers.

The 79 T.rex and Steppe Mammoth sculptures arrived across the county last weekend for the start of this year’s trail, which is once again raising vital funds for Break.

Each sculpture features its own special design, so there were some surprised looks when lorry loads of colourful mammoths drove past, or when a T.rex was lowered in a cage outside The Forum.

The result is a trail which centres in Norwich but also takes in locations including King’s Lynn, Dereham, Cromer, Happisburgh and Hemsby, providing a trail to explore between now and Saturday, September 10.

The 55 T.rex and 24 mammoths join the 100 Breakasaurus mini T.rex sculptures already out there to track down, after more than 30 staff spent 25 hours of last weekend installing the new members of the prehistoric posse.

Pete Marron, GoGoDiscover project manager, said: “It really is a mammoth task putting them all in situ across Norwich and Norfolk but our team of staff and volunteers have been absolutely fantastic in getting them out on the trail, ready to be enjoyed by dinosaur hunters of all ages.”

GoGoDiscover is delivered by East Anglian charity Break, in partnership with Wild in Art and sponsors Norwich BID, Chantry Place and ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure.

Paul McCarthy, general manager of Chantry Place, which has six T.rex sculptures, said: “The dinosaurs we have this year are truly outstanding and children will love spotting all the animals on the Sir David Attenborough inspired one, and one even has braille – the first time a sculpture has had it.

“Break are also going to be at Chantry Place on a few select dates throughout the summer too, and we hope that the trail and auction this year raises lots of money for the charity.”

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

Those taking on the trail can download the GoGoDiscover app now for £1.79 from the app store of mobile devices and trail maps are available for a suggested donation of £1 from map hubs including The Forum, the Royal Arcade, Jarrold and Break retail shops.
