The first of the Tyrannosaurus-Rex sculptures that will line the streets of Norwich this summer is to be revealed this weekend.

To mark National Dinosaur Day, the colourful two-metre sculpture, sponsored by Norwich BID, will be available between 11am and 3pm with people being able to take a selfie.

Visitors will also have the option to donate to East Anglian charity Break who are delivering the trail in partnership with Wild in Art. 

Peter Marron, GoGoDiscover project manager, said: “The T-rex being revealed on National Dinosaur Day has really got the wow factor and will look incredible in front of Chantry Place’s beautiful rainbow.
