Dragons appear in the East of England
2 July 2015

For the third time running, Norwich has been invaded by large animals... 204 of them. But don't worry! The local zoo has not opened its gates.

A charity in Norfolk is raising money for children, young people and families in the East of England. In 2013, the city was full of gorilla sculptures. They raised more than a quarter of a million pounds with GoGoGorilla!

This year it is GoGoDragon! There are 84 large dragon sculptures around the city and 120 smaller dragons that have been painted by local schools. Each dragon is sponsored by a local trust, group or business and will be sold on 1 October to raise money for the charity.

English language centre NILE (Norwich Institute for Language Education) has their very own junior dragon and are encouraging students to follow the dragon trail. The dragon trail is a path you can follow through the city to explore its history, admire the artwork and have fun. Find out more.

The dragons will be on display from 21 June - 5 September.
