Thousands of people have been flocking to Norwich to bid farewell to the city’s GoGoDragons!
The colourful clan delighted people of all ages when they took their places on an art trail brought to the city this summer by children’s charity Break and Wild in Art.
All the dragons are now gathered at the Forum for the last time before they are auctioned.
The GoGoDragons! team has been overwhelmed by the number of people who have come to say goodbye to the winged warriors.
More than 9,000 dragon fans visited the Forum for the first day of the farewell event on Sunday, and about 8,000 people went on Monday.
GoGoDragons! project manager Martin Green said: “It has been absolutely phenomenal. It is amazing to see how many people want to give the dragons a good send-off. It’s a really lovely send-off. People have supported the dragons in their droves and it just shows how people have taken the dragons to their hearts.”
Today is the final day of the “last chance to see” event with the dragons on show at the Forum from 9am until 7pm.
Tomorrow night the dragons will go under the hammer at a charity auction at the Forum to raise funds for Break.
Tickets for the auction are sold out but bids can be submitted at www.gogodragons.co.uk
