GoGo and Discover!
Join us in summer 2022 for a 10 week adventure full of colossal creatures and family-friendly exploration. Taking to plinths all across Norfolk, the sculptures will get everyone enjoying the great outdoors on a journey that will help you explore all corners of our wonderful county.
T.riffic T.rex sculptures will take to the streets of Norwich alongside a new colossal Steppe Mammoth sculpture – the biggest trail sculpture to ever stomp the streets of the region. The Steppe Mammoths will be found across Norfolk to celebrate the Deep History Coast and Norfolk being the site of the discovery of the largest and oldest mammoth ever found in Britain. If that wasn’t enough, GoGoDiscover will also see mini ‘Breaksaurus’ T.rex on their own trail as part of our Learning and Community Programme.
The trail will be live across Norfolk from Monday 27th June until Saturday 10th September and will encourage explorers of all ages to have fun and learn more about the county, while simultaneously working to raise awareness and vital funds for Break and the vulnerable children and young people they support.
At the end of the trail many of the sculptures will go to a charity auction where all proceeds raised will go directly to Break to help them continue their work with vulnerable young people across the region on the edge of care, in care and leaving care.
See fantastic attractions, heritage sites and stunning coastline - and take breaks along the way to enjoy the spectacular retail and refreshment opportunities that this region has to offer.
GoGoDiscover 2022 will create many fun-filled days out for all, bringing creativity and colour to Norfolk while also raising vital funds and awareness for Break. If you enjoy the trail, please donate if you can!
How to get involved
Become a Trail Ranger! As we prepare to unleash our sculptures on Norwich and Norfolk, the search continues to find the enthusiastic team of volunteers we need to make the trail a reality.
Volunteer Trail Rangers are key in leading the experience and giving a warm welcome to all of the thousands of people who are expected to visit our fantastic sculptures in 2022.
All Trail Rangers will play a role in making the trail a huge success, and in return volunteers will gain first-hand experience of the project as well as the chance to benefit from specialist training and valuable new skills. Last but not at all least is the chance to enjoy behind-the-scenes access to one of the biggest events taking place in East Anglia that year!
You don’t need to be a dinosaur expert to get involved. You just need to enjoy meeting people, have a friendly and helpful attitude, and lots of enthusiasm!
What is GoGoDiscover?
GoGoDiscover is a sculpture trail that will raise awareness and vital funds for Break by setting T.rex and Steppe Mammoths loose across Norwich and Norfolk next summer. Each sculpture has been decorated by local and national artists and sponsored by businesses from across the region.
The charity sculpture trail is delivered by East Anglia-based children’s charity Break, in partnership with Wild in Art.
How can I plan my route around the trail?
To plan your route you will be able to pick up a trail map from a local trail map hub or download one from our website or our new GoGoDiscover App.

There is a suggested donation of £1 per map to Break. You will be able to make your donation in a collection pot at one of the trail map hubs or via our website.
