GoGoDiscover a pack of dinosaurs at Chantry Place this summer with 36 T.rex to discover

Chantry Place has unveiled the dinosaurs that have stomped into the Centre this summer for GoGoDiscover 2022 as it hosts six large T.rex sculptures and 30 Breakasaurus T.rex sculptures from now until 10th September 2022.

As well as the return of Afternoon Tea-Rex, the T.rex that Chantry Place has sponsored, and the amazing T-Wrecks, new dinosaurs for 2022 include Sirdavidsaurus Rex, T-RAFFE, The Golden King and Paintosaurus. 

Chantry Place is a presenting partner of GoGoDiscover 2022 and also plays host to 30 mini Breakasaurus T.rex as part of the GoGoDiscover Learning & Community Programme with packs found on the dining terrace, in House of Fraser and in Langleys window at the Centre. The large sculptures can be found on each floor of the Centre, as well as on Chantry Square.

Paul McCarthy, General Manager at Chantry Place, comments: “The 2021 trail was incredible but this year it has got even bigger with more dinosaurs to discover in Norwich and new Steppe Mammoth sculptures scattered around Norfolk. The dinosaurs we have this year are truly outstanding and children will love spotting all the animals on the Sir David Attenborough inspired one, and one even has braille – the first time a sculpture has had it. Break are also going to be at Chantry Place on a few select dates throughout the summer too, and we hope that the trail and auction this year raises lots of money for the charity . The creativity and skill shown by the local schools and community groups who have decorated the smaller T.rex sculptures is really inspiring and the sculptures have really brightened up the Centre.”

The GoGoDiscover charity sculpture trail is delivered by East Anglian based children’s charity Break, in partnership with Wild in Art. Each sculpture has been decorated by local and national artists and sponsored by businesses from across the region.

While the trail is free, people who have enjoyed the sculptures can donate to Break via text or on the website, so that Break can continue to transform futures and change the lives of vulnerable children and young people across the region.

    A local young people’s charity is celebrating after winning a prestigious Reuse Network award. The accolade recognises the work of The Benjamin Foundation, in partnership with leading waste and resource management company, FCC Environment, to promote reuse and prevent waste, while creating social value and raising funds to support young people in Norfolk and Suffolk.

    The charity was presented with the Reuse Network’s Innovative Project of the Year award at a ceremony last month to recognise and celebrate the success of the Norwich Reuse Drop Off Centre which opened in June 2022. The Innovative Project of the Year award recognises originality, inspired ideas and acknowledges those who have worked hard to implement them. The Benjamin Foundation has transformed the former local authority operated recycling centre on Swanton Road, Norwich to an innovative, first of its kind for the UK, reuse drive through and drop off centre, making reuse in Norwich more accessible and convenient than ever.

  • Norwich Market at Christmas

    This festive period, you don’t need to look any further than Norwich Market for the perfect Christmas – from gifts to lunch on the big day, and there’ll be little activities for children too.

    Councillor Adam Giles, cabinet member with responsibility for Norwich Market said: “Norwich Market is a special place all-year-round, but it has an extra sparkle at this time of year. There really is something for everyone and if you are able to support these small local businesses we look forward to welcoming you there this Christmas-time.”

    Josh Worley, chair of Norwich Market Traders Association and co-owner of Water + Earth said: “Norwich Market is once again getting well into the festive spirit and hosting a number of events and activities in the lead-up to Christmas for everyone to take part in. For us traders, setting up Santa's Grotto, and the many events taking part within it, is our way of giving a little something back to the families who support our incredibly diverse group of independent traders, and help make our historic market the place to shop for ethical, thoughtful and locally-sourced gifts this Christmas.”
