Your last chance to say farewell to the popular GoGoHares has arrived!
In a final farewell all the hares from across Norfolk will be hopping down to The Forum, Norwich, before they are auctioned off for charity.
But before they get there the final countdown starts with projections of every hare on Norwich Castle by Norwich BID every night at 8pm.
The hare sculpture trail, created by Break charity in partnership with Wild in Art, has been a popular activity throughout the summer, and comes in the charities 50th year.
From Sunday, October 7 until Wednesday, October 10 The Forum will host Hare Today Gone Tomorrow. The ticketed event will see all the hares come together in one location.
Martin Green, project manager, said: “The event has grown year on year and we are hopeful of a big turn out.
“The Sunday is proving the most popular so far and we have many of the artists around during the event to sign postcards and official guides too.”
On Thursday, October 11 the 50 hares will be sold at auction at TW Gaze by celebrity Flog It auctioneer Elizabeth Talbot and Mike Sarson.
The money raised by the GoGoHares trail will help fund the work carried out by Break’s Moving on Team, supporting vulnerable young people to live independently after leaving the care system.
The Moving on team guide, and support young care leavers when they leave the formal care system at just 18.
This could be the simple things we take for granted like teaching young people to cook, pay bills, live independently and continue in education or training.
The Box Office opens on Saturday, October 6 in the afternoon at The Forum and is open everyday of the exhibition, or bookings can be made online via the VisitNorwich.
