The schools project will see more than 100 baby dragons go on display at The Forum, Intu Chapelfield, Castle Mall, Norwich Lanes and other independent retailers from July 4 until September 5.

They will join the 84 full-sized dragons which will already be on display on the city’s streets.

The schools project has been organised by The Forum.

Chief executive Tim Bishop said: “We are delighted that so many schools and youth groups took part and that potentially thousands of children are going to enjoy seeing these sculptures on display.

“The project was about creativity and heritage and making sure that as many young people as possible,
from all around Norfolk, had the chance to be part of the GoGoDragons! 2015.”

After September 5 the baby dragons will go back to their schools.
