First glimpse of Duelling Dragons sculpture ahead of GoGoDragons! official launch this evening
The red carpet will be out, and confetti will be at the ready for the riverside launch of the GoGoDragons! sculpture trail.
Television presenter Jake Humphrey will be among the speakers as some of the large dragons will make their make their first public appearances. They will be joined by some of their smaller cousins, which have been decorated by schools across the region.
Tonight’s highlight will be the countdown to the 7.55pm unveiling of the Duelling Dragons sculpture outside the Odeon cinema, which will be led by Mr Humphrey and Robert Warner, from Riverside Entertainment, which is sponsoring the launch. So far only partial photographs of the main sculpture have been released, ahead of the official launch.
The Duelling Dragons, which has been created by Norfolk Antique and Reclamation Centre, will be the central focus for this location on the trail.
Prepare yourself for another big reveal…
Two years ago, the GoGoGorillas! helped to give Norwich a summer to remember, as they brought some light-hearted fun to the city’s streets.
Now, the GoGoDragons! are all set to take centre stage and provide an even more memorable season.
The EDP is proud to sponsor this event, which is not only something to lift the spirits, but will also raise some much-needed funds for two wonderful charities.
But tomorrow’s unveiling of the spectacular Duelling Dragons sculpture is not the only surprise coming up for dragon fans.
Here at the EDP, we are standing by for a very big reveal of our own in the next few days.
So stay tuned for news of a very special contribution to what is sure to be remembered in years to come as The Summer of the Dragon.
It is something that is bound to appeal to fans of the sculpture trail, old and young, and will add an extra, special dimension to the whole experience. We are sure it will be a roaring success.
GoGoDragons! is a Wild in Art event organised by Norfolk children’s charity, Break, and includes 84 large dragon sculptures, and 120 schools dragons.
They will be placed throughout the city centre, with a few on the outskirts.
The trail starts on Sunday, June 21, and runs until Saturday, September 5.
Its grand finale will be a gathering at The Forum, from September 27 to September 30, followed by the grand auction on October 1.
