GoGoHares galore are gathering in a top secret location ahead of hopping out into the city and county this summer.

The colourful characters will be the stars of the GoGoHares art trail being brought to Norwich and Norfolk by children’s charity Break and Wild in Art.

Artists, sponsors, schools and community groups have been busily working on their creations, and the sculptures are now all lining up ready for final preparations for the trail which starts on June 24.

Martin Green, from Break, said: “The GoGoHares are here! It has taken 18 months to get to this point and we are excited by what we are going to be showing the public in summer 2018. From countryside scenes to superheroes, the hares are an eclectic mix and it is amazing to see them all together.”

The GoGoHares are a key part of Break’s 50th aniversary celebrations. Fifty hares will decorate Norwich and 18 more will be displayed around the wider county.
