Our Maddermarket Theatre GoGoDragon! is soon to take pride of place in our new visual arts gallery in the theatre foyer, and over the winter, veteran theatre designer John Stokes will be painting many of William Shakespeare’s characters on our dragon, in readiness for his arrival in our lower courtyard, summer 2015. This will be a tremendous educational opportunity for schools and colleges…. How many images can you see on our dragon?…and can you spot the hidden dragon in our lower courtyard on your visit to the Jewel in the Crown of theatre in Norfolk.
