Details announced for GoGoDiscover 2022

After announcing the dates for the 2021 trail, Break has revealed details about the second half of the two year trail of prehistoric proportions by announcing it’s 2022 partners, as well as giving a first look at the gigantic Steppe Mammoth sculpture set to join the T.rex in Norfolk next year! 

GoGoDiscover 2022 will take place between Monday 27th June and Saturday 10th September 2022 with a mighty herd of Steppe Mammoth across Norfolk and even more T.rex to be discovered in Norwich. The trail is delivered by East Anglian based children’s charity Break, who provide lifelong support to children and young people in care, on the edge of care or leaving care, in partnership with Wild in Art.

Each T.rex and mammoth in the family-friendly trail will be decorated by local and national artists and sponsored by businesses from across the region, with many opportunities available for businesses to get involved in next year’s event. The GoGoDiscover county trail celebrates the Deep History Coast and Norfolk being home to the discovery of the largest and oldest mammoth ever found in Britain.

Wild in Art’s mammoth sculpture was designed by Norfolk artist Sally Adams and is based on the Steppe Mammoth. Her original model was then scaled up by model makers to make the six foot fibre-glass resin sculpture.

The presenting partners for GoGoDiscover 2022 are Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure, Norwich BID and Chantry Place, and the media partner for the event is the Eastern Daily Press. The event is also proudly being supported by county-lead sponsors, North Norfolk District Council and West Norfolk & King’s Lynn Borough Council. A list of all other trail sponsors can be found on Break’s website.

Adam Goymour, company director at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure said: “Being part of the GoGoDiscover county trail for the second time is really significant to us. Our common interests are dinosaurs and Jurassic creatures, and as an East Anglian attraction which places huge importance on children’s wellbeing and their childhood experiences, collaborating with Break feels like a natural and meaningful partnership for us. We’re really committed to helping raise awareness of the charity’s essential and much-needed work in this area. It’s a roarr-some initiative.”

Eleanor Edge, GoGoDiscover Partnership Lead, comments: “On behalf of Break, I would like to say a massive thank you to the partners and sponsors who have already stomped on board to help us raise awareness of the vital work our team does in striving for the best outcomes for young people on the edge of care, in care and moving on from care. We are still looking for more businesses to sponsor either a mammoth or T.rex in 2022, so please do get in touch and be part of this unique and exciting event, which will brighten up the streets of Norwich and Norfolk. Of course, as a charity, there’s many ways people can get involved and donate when they do the free trails with all money raised helping local people in the region. The mammoth and T.rex sculptures are the largest we’ve ever done and we can’t wait for people to see these bright, colourful and fun pieces of art on the streets.”

A charity auction of most of the sculptures will be held in Autumn 2022 to raise vital funds for Break, so that the charity can continue to transform futures and change the lives of vulnerable children and young people across the region.

  • Could you be a T.rex Trail Ranger? Break issues callout to mark Volunteers’ Week

    To mark Volunteers’ Week, between 1st and 7th June 2021, Break is appealing for volunteers to get up close to 20 large T.rex this summer by signing-up to be a GoGoDiscover Trail Ranger.

    There are a handful of exciting volunteer positions available and you don’t even need to be a dinosaur expert to apply! The T.rex Rangers will each be needed a few times throughout the summer as part of Break’s colourful GoGoDiscover trail to help maintain the sculptures, promote the trail and ensure it is a success, as well as support Break’s fundraising efforts.

    In addition to recruiting Trail Rangers for the summer, Break is also seeking volunteer mentors, fundraising volunteers and retail volunteers to support its work across the region. As a charity, Break relies on an incredible team of volunteers to help support its fundraising team so that it can continue to provide lifelong support to children and young people in care, on the edge of care or leaving care.

    Sarah Bunn, Community Fundraising Manager at Break, said: “We are looking for an enthusiastic, flexible and committed team of volunteers to support our prehistoric parade and, as well as it being lots of fun, the Trail Rangers will receive training, develop new skills and enjoy behind-the-scenes access to one of the biggest events taking place in Norwich this year. Trail Rangers will also assist with the cleaning and presentation of the sculptures, ensuring every T.rex looks its best, and help with fundraising efforts. As a charity, we are always looking for people to spread the word about Break and we have lots of opportunities to volunteer at our amazing events to raise funds to support the work we do with children and young people.”

     

  • Break unveils first GoGoDiscover T.rex at Chantry Place on National Dinosaur Day

    Today [May 15, 2021], the first GoGoDiscover Tyrannosaurus-Rex sculpture was unveiled at Chantry Place in Norwich in celebration of National Dinosaur Day. Prideasaurus took centre stage underneath the illuminated rainbow on Chantry Square and provided an exclusive look at what the 2021 GoGoDiscover trail promises this summer.

    Sponsored by Norwich BID and designed by local artist Martin Wall, Prideasaurus is a 2 metre tall dazzling rainbow dinosaur, featuring thousands of colourful gems applied by hand from head to tail. Shoppers were invited to get up close and take selfies with the sequinned T.rex sculpture, with the option of making a donation to children’s charity Break, which delivers the trail in partnership with Wild in Art.

    The Break team was also on hand during the day to tell people about GoGoDiscover and the charity’s vital work across East Anglia in providing lifelong support to children and young people in care, on the edge of care or leaving care.

  • Break announces Mammoth Sculpture Trails across Norwich & Norfolk

    With dates for the 2021 GoGoDiscover T.rex trail set to be announced very soon, Break has revealed that this year’s event will form the first half of a two year trail of prehistoric proportions, with even more T.rex and another gigantic species to discover next year! 

    The 20 T.rex forming a Jurassic jaunt around Norwich in Summer 2021 won’t fade into extinction, and will return in Summer 2022 for 10 weeks, with more new T.rex friends and a mighty herd of Steppe Mammoth – and this time it will go county wide!

    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 celebrate the Deep History Coast. The new Steppe Mammoth sculptures tie into Norfolk being home to the discovery of the largest and oldest mammoth ever found in Britain.

    The T.rex and Steppe Mammoth sculptures will be decorated by local and national artists and sponsored by businesses from across the region.

    Following the 2021 and 2022 GoGoDiscover family-friendly trails, a charity auction of most of the sculptures will be held in October 2022 to raise vital funds for Break; transforming futures and changing lives of vulnerable children and young people across the region.

  • Cheque Presentation to Break – Maids Head Hotel Charity 2019

    Throughout 2019, Break was the Maids Head Hotel's local charity. During the year staff and guests raised £1,184.06. We invited Danielle Gravestock from Break to receive the cheque and celebrate the fundraising success with our staff.

    The money was raised through collection buckets, a Christmas raffle and donations at special events including resident tour guide Paul Dickson's Shardlake's Norwich tours during English Tourism Week and Norfolk Day and Rob Knee from the Paston Heritage Society who gave talks about the Pastons and the Paston Letters on Norfolk Day and on 22 November. The second talk was on the anniversary of the Maids Head getting it's first official written mention in a Paston letter. A team from the Maids Head – Jonathan Brasnett, Andrew Shorthose and Rose Taylor - also completed the City of Norwich half marathon in aid of Break.
