Last chance to see GoGoDragons!

By the end of Saturday 5th September the dragons will be removed from their resting places and taken back to dragon’s lair to be pampered and polished ready for their next exciting activity.

Some of the dragons have had a few scratches and scuffs, and some have had a little more damage which all needs to be sorted prior to the 27th September when for 4 days only the dragons will all be together for one last burst of excitement both outside and inside the Forum.

From Mid day on Sunday 27th September, then daily all day we will have merchandise for sale including 5 figurines of Morgan, Ashman, Cavell, Draco and Patch, as well as the final stock of t shirts, hats, games, mugs and magnets as stock lasts.

On each of the four days there will be artists from the dragon project for dragon fans to meet and get a signed postcard of their work.

There will also be a raffle to win a school size dragon that can be painted to the requirements of the winning ticket holder.

Break charity have been overwhelmed with the level of work on all dragons this year, and the number of people who have visited from this region, the country and the world have been amazing. 

The final shout on this public art activity is the auction, and this will be held at The Forum, on Thursday 1st October.  82 of the dragons will be available to purchase at that event which is admission by ticket only.  If you are interested in owning a dragon you need to either be there or to place a bid via our website under the Auction tab.  Members of the dragon team will be available throughout the event to answer queries and questions about the auction and the work that break does.  There will be a live twitter feed on the night for all interested dragon hunters to feel like they are involved.

To enter the trail map competition it must all be filled in and delivered to either John Lewis or Norwich International Airport or sent to:  Martin Green, Break, Schofield House, Spar Road, Norwich, NR6 6BX, to be received by 14 September 2015.  The competition will winner will be announced during the Last Chance to see event.
