Details announced for GoGoDiscover 2022 - First look at mammoth, Roarrsome partnerships and trail dates

26 May 2021

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.

Businesses interested in getting involved in GoGoDiscover should email Eleanor.edge@break-charity.org for more information. You can download a sponsorship opportunities brochure from break-charity.org.
