The sun shone and Norwich was alive with trail maps and people following their app to find the GoGoHare sculptures around Norfolk for eleven weeks. With 50 hare sculptures in the city and 18 in the county the feedback has been that many people have loved the variety of art styles, and had great family time ticking off the sculptures, whilst enjoying fresh air and visiting places for the first time. Norfolk children’s charity Break in partnership with Wild in Art have organised the GoGoHares sculpture trail bringing fun, education and creativity to Norfolk throughout the summer of 2018. There have also been 164 leverets around the county as part of the learning programme called GoGoCreate.

North Norfolk has become the full-time home of two of the fabulous GoGoHares who have taken the region by storm.

It means Lepus…
