Ploddy, Norwich Cathedral’s dinosaur puppet, has a summer of prehistoric fun planned for children visiting Norwich Cathedral.

And Ploddy’s Prehistoric Adventures kicked off on Norfolk Day - Monday, July 27 - when families were invited to a ‘roarsome’ picnic in the cathedral grounds.

Children were able to go on an adventure around the cathedral, learning about different dinosaurs.

A spokesperson from Norwich Cathedral said: “ Children will be able to enjoy spotting dinosaurs hidden around the cathedral and have fun doing a dinosaur quiz.

“Every child who completes the trail will be rewarded with a prize from the cathedral shop.”

There will be a new trail to follow every Monday during the summer holidays and more details about the rest of the trails will be revealed soon.
