'Hare Today Gone Tomorrow' 7 - 10 October 2018

GoGoHares 2018

GoGoHares 2018 is presented by Break in partnership with Wild in Art.


Over the summer, 50 city sculptures formed the main trail with a further 18 moongazer sculptures across Norfolk in towns, villages and tourist attractions.

The hugely popular GoGoHares trail started on Sunday 24th June and ran until Saturday 8th September.

But fear not - if you didn't get to see all of the hares, they will be the 'Hare Today Gone Tomorrow' event. This will be your last chance to see all of the large sculptures on 7th – 10th October outside the Forum. CLICK HERE TO BOOK.

On 11th October, 50 sculptures will be auctioned off at the Forum. The proceeds raised will help fund the vital work carried out by Break's Moving on Team across East Anglia, supporting vulnerable young people live independently after leaving the care system. BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE.

GoGoCreate, the education programme has enabled schools, nurseries and community groups to decorate their very own baby hare better known as a leveret. 164 leverets, joined the main trail and could be found in various locations including, intu Chapelfield, Castle Mall, the Forum, John Lewis and many independent shops and businesses.

The reason the 'Hare' sculpture was chosen was because it is a popular iconic subject for artists and can regularly be seen in the countryside of East Anglia. 50 was chosen as the number of city hares in recognition of Break’s 50th Anniversary in 2018. This is the third time Break has partnered with Wild in Art to present a major public art event.

GoGoHares was brought to Norwich with the help of supporting partners Aspiration Europe, The Beeston Group, intu Chapelfield and The Norse Group. The trail was also supported by the EDP, Norwich Evening News as media partners, Ridgeons as logistics partner, Jarrold as retail partner and TW Gaze as auction partner.

Maps were available in tourist information centres in the city and county and Break charity shops. Trail goers could even download the app 'GoGoHares 2018 Norwich' on iPhone and Android.

GoGoHares merchandise including, bags, tea towels, badges and postcards and the limited edition Emma Bridgewater 'Hare' mug can be bought from Jarrold, the Forum shop and some Break shops.

Pablo the circus hare was not on the trail as he is giving you the chance to win him in a raffle. He is in intu Chapelfield near the information desk and the £10 tickets can be purchased there.
