A leisure venue in the city centre is gearing up for a summer of Jurassic-themed fun.

Animatronic dinosaurs will be roaming through Castle Quarter in July and August to coincide with the city-wide GoGoDiscover art trail giving visitors the chance to meet these life-like prehistoric reptiles.

From Monday, June 27, five T-rex sculptures designed by schools and community groups will be on display and a number of other events are planned.

The GoGoDiscover art trail will also come to Castle Quarter, with several sculptures dotted around for families to find

Rob Bradley, manager at Castle Quarter, said: “We loved being part of the Break GoGoDiscover trail last year and can’t wait for the dinosaurs to return.  

"We’re particularly excited to welcome back our own dinosaur, SNAP! in his ‘I love Norwich’ t-shirt.

“Castle Quarter has been a key part of the Norwich landscape for almost 30 years and, whilst we’re no longer a shopping centre, our commitment to providing the people of Norwich and Norfolk with a vibrant place to spend their leisure time remains the same.”

The animatronic dinosaurs can be spotted at Castle Quarter on Tuesdays from July 26 - August 30 between 12pm - 4pm. 

All the events will raise funds for Break and Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital through donations.
