A mighty herd of mammoths will follow this year’s trail of T-rex sculptures for the popular Break GoGoDiscover trail of 2022.

This year’s event – fearsome yet friendly T-rexes – will have dates set soon and will be the start of a two-year trail “of prehistoric proportions”.

The 20 sculptures – part of a Jurassic jaunt around Norwich this summer – will not fade into extinction and will return in summer 2022 along with a mighty herd of Steppe Mammoths – and this time it will go countywide.

Bringing colour, fun and beautiful art across Norwich and Norfolk, GoGoDiscover is delivered by East Anglia based charity Break in partnership with Wild in Art and the 2022 trail will also celebrate our Deep History Coast. The steppe mammoths tie in with Norfolk being home to the discovery of the largest and oldest mammoth ever found in Britain.

As usual all the sculptures will be decorated by local and national artists and sponsored by businesses from across the region.

After both the family-friendly trails are over there will be a charity to raise vital funds for Break, a charity which helps vulnerable children and young people across the region.

Break will be announcing some of the partners and sponsors who have already stomped on board for 2022 very soon but is now calling out for other businesses to get involved.

Peter Marron, GoGoDiscover project manager said: “We are so excited to once again be working with Wild in Art to bring a two-year art trail to Norwich and Norfolk, which will bring tourism and economic benefits to the region, put smiles on people’s faces, encourage adventure and exploration of our beautiful county and raise awareness and vital funds for Break.

“The 2021 T-rexes all have sponsors already and look amazing – we can’t wait to start sharing more news and sneak peeks of them very soon! But now is the time for businesses to sign-up for 2022 and be part of this truly unique and exciting event, while supporting Break.”

Businesses and community groups interested in getting involved in GoGoDiscover should visit break-charity.org/gogodiscover or email peter.marron@break-charity.org

GoGoDiscover follows the success of GoGoHares in 2018, GoGoDragons and GoGoGorillas. Previous trails have raised over £1m for Break.
