Hopefully you’ve all enjoyed seeing all of the wonderful City and County GoGo hares and leverets in this years GoGo Hare trail as much as we have loved sponsoring our own Haremit Crab over in Great Yarmouth. But as the trail comes to an end, we wanted to let you know of your chance for a little last spot of Hare-Hunting.
Lever’ART at the Undercroft.
We had great fun helping the team at Break, along with other volunt-hares, hare’ing around the city collecting all 164 leverets ready for the Lever’ART exhibition opened on September 5th and runs until September 23 at the Undercroft exhibition space at the back of Norwich Market.
The 164 ‘baby hares’ could previously be seen in various locations around Norwich, such as intu Chapelfield, The Forum, Castle Mall shopping centre, the Hostry, House of Fraser and John Lewis…as well as Super Hare in our own Norwich store!
The Lever’ART exhibition gives you a chance to meet the Break team and find out more the charity, the work they do and the people they help to support as well as seeing all164 leverets all in one location, saving on some serious leg work.
There’s a suggested donation of £1 on the door, which goes to Break and helps towards carrying out the fantastic work that they do.
The exhibition will be open daily – Monday to Saturday 12pm-5pm and Sunday 12pm-3pm.
The Leverets are a part of the GoGo Create project, which was sponsored by the lovely folk over at Pensthorpe Natural Park, and had 164 youth groups, schools, community groups and sports clubs take part in sponsoring and decorating their own ‘baby Hares’.
Hare today, Gone tomorrow event.
From Sunday 7th – Wednesday 10th October, you can book an hour and a half slot to the ‘Hare Today Gone Tomorrow’ event, which will see all the City and County hares gathered in the same marquee outside The Forum, Norwich, including our very own Haremit Crab! Maybe there are some you haven’t spotted yet, or perhaps you just want to see the impressive spectacle of all these beautiful sculptures brought together for the last time – don’t miss your chance to attend this great one-off event.
The exhibition will also include two hares which are not on the trails – Pablo the circus-themed hare which is a raffle hare and could be yours for a £10 raffle ticket, which will be drawn on 15th October and the Joules Hare which is the prize for the county trail winner.
So with 70 unique hares in one place for one event only and an opportunity to meet the artists too – what a great way to celebrate a summer of fun!
The GoGoHares sculpture trail was created by Norfolk children’s charity, Break, in partnership with Wild in Art.
