"We are delighted to announce our partnership with Break and to be working with the team on the GoGoSafari sculpture trail," said Joshua Hunter-Harl, Head of Income Generation at the Zoological Society of East Anglia. "This collaboration aligns perfectly with our commitment to conservation and community support. We look forward to making a positive social impact on the lives of those served by Break, while also enhancing the experiences we offer for our community.”

Break's Senior Partnerships Manager, Peter Marron, commented on the collaboration, stating: "We are excited to work with the Zoological Society of East Anglia. Their dedication to community engagement mirrors Break's commitment to making a real difference in the lives of our young people, some of whom have faced an incredibly challenging start in life. They are also a perfect fit as thepartner for our next exciting sculpture trail, GoGoSafari and we look forward to working with them to bring some fun and impactful events in the lead up the trail.” 

GoGoSafari will include five majestic animals straight from the African Savannah marching their way across Norwich and Norfolk in the summer of 2025. The safari sculpture trail will see everyone’s favourite the Gorilla, last seen in Norwich in 2013 alongside a new elephant, a lion, a giraffe and a rhino! There will also be a Learning & Community Programme which will include schools and community groups decorating their own smaller giraffe sculpture.

Delivered by Break the trail is in partnership with Wild in Art and the Zoological Society of East Anglia, with presenting partners Norwich BID and Chantry Place. Taking place for around ten weeks in the summer of 2025, we are hoping to have approximately 50 sculptures across the city and county. Each will be sponsored by a business that will choose from designs submitted by artists to bring their sculptures to life.
