After flying off from Norwich’s streets a few weeks ago, the colourful clan of GoGoDragons! is set to return once more for a final farewell that starts this weekend.

The 84 fire-breathing beasts captivated people of all ages this summer on the GoGoDragons! charity
art trail brought to Norwich by
children’s charity Break and Wild in Art.

Fresh from the art project scooping two accolades at the Norfolk Arts Awards, they will be back together for one final time at a four-day event at The Forum, which starts on Sunday.

After this they will be auctioned off, and the hope is they will raise lots of funds for Break.

GoGoDragons! project manager Martin Green said: “This is the exciting time when we are getting the dragons ready for their big showpiece event. At the ‘last chance to see event’ people can come along, pop a donation in the pot and have a look at the dragons all together. Come along and say goodbye to the much-loved dragons before their swansong at the auction.”

The GoGoDragons! will be on show at The Forum from noon until 5pm this Sunday, and from 9am until 7pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

Eighty-two of the dragons will then go under the hammer at an auction to raise funds for Break at The Forum on Thursday, October 1. Tickets for the auction are sold out but you can submit pre-bids for the dragons at www.gogodragons.co.uk
