Latest addition to the GoGoDragons! trail unveiled at Norwich airport

Crowds formed as the dragon’s designer, artist Paul Jackson, and the airport’s CEO Andrew Bell revealed the design of the dragon which the airport is sponsoring.

Named, wish you were here, the dragon is decorated with scenes and well-known landmarks from destinations the airport travels to.

Mr Jackson, who is also a story tell and lives in Cromer, said: “It was an honour to make this dragon for Break, which does a wonderful job.

“I loved doing it and I like details and hiding things in my work. There are secrets on the dragon and if children can find these then he will come to life.”

The dragon took the artist two weeks of 14 hour days to complete and will be part of the 80 strong GoGoDragons! fundraising trail – organised by children’s charity Break and Wild in Art – throughout Norwich this summer.

Last year it is estimated that between 750,000 and one million people took part in the GoGoGorillas! trail.

Michael Rooney, fundraising manger at Break, said: “Wish you were here is astonishing and beautiful. We hope that this year’s trail will be bigger and better than last year.”
