We're extremely proud to announce that we are sponsoring a Break Charity GoGoHare. These bouncy creatures will be resident on the streets of Norwich from 24th June - 8th September 2018.
The trail of big-eared animals are part of the Wild in Art sculpture trails which have become so popular they are popping up all across the UK.
Break Charity have already provided two massively successful art trails in Norwich, the GoGoGorillas and GoGoDragons. The trails have not only raised thousands of pounds for young person's charity, Break, but have increased footfall for Norwich city and its businesses.
GoGo Hareman Jack Hargreaves is being created by talented artist Evelyn Sinclair. She has already created characters for the Henson Pigs trail, exciting!
Look out for our hare, GoGo Hareman on the streets and be sure to send us your selfies using hashtags #ggh18 and #ChocksAway and follow him on Twitter: www.twitter.com/GogoHareman
We'll be updating this blog with news and pictures so keep checking back for updates and to see if your picture makes it here too! We'll post as many as we can.
03-07-18 - George the Dragon flies in for a visit
It isn't every day that one is the company of such a celebrity! My dear friend George is quite the dragon about town, you can’t miss him with his big eyes and furry monobrow. He is resident Dragon with my sponsors, ESE Direct. We share our PA, the loyal Debs, she and George climbed the castle mound to pay me a visit. They even brought me tea from George's market stall on Norwich Market! I love tea! Rumour has it, George will be with me once a week so you can grab a selfie with us both. I shall update you with dates and times as soon as I can. I just need my people to talk to his people…. Oh wait.
02-07-18 - Here we have Mark Wilson and chums. Mark is the Sales Manager at my super sponsors, ESE Direct.
01-07-18 - Fun in the sun
What a splendid first week on my plinth I have had. I’ve been treated to visits by so many lovely folk. I even had a fine ex-RAF gentleman stop by to say pip pip.
24-06-18 - Hare I am!
Finally unleashed from the secret GoGoHares Hare Lair, I've made it to my home for the summer. With one of the best views over Norwich city, you'll find me in Castle Gardens on plinth number 20. Why not come and have a picnic lunch with me under my shady tree. I'm on the same level as the delicious Castle Mall food hall, my friend GoGoHare Boudicca's Revolt is also inhabiting a plinth by the Norwich Castle so pop by to see her too. You can get your GoGoHares Trail Map from The Forum, Tourist Information or any of the Break charity shops. For the cool kids, an app is available with £1 of the download price going directly to Break! Spiffing!
I had an amazing first day welcome to my plinth as I was sharing the gardens with Norwich Mumbler who were running an event for parents and children. What a delight to be surrounded by so many smiling folk on a stunning summer day. We have lift off!
11-06-18 - Golly, I have been a busy hare. I had a lovely time as chief office hare at ESE towers, they wouldn't let me answer the telephone, but I think I did a good job welcoming our visitors. It's not every day you come face to face with a giant hare, no?!
06-06-18 - I'm spending a few days with my sponsors at ESE Direct, Joanne wished she had big ears like me and look what happened.
16-03-18 - A sad but exciting day for this old hare as I said a fond farewell to my artist Evelyn and it was chocks away, off down south for me! I was all bubble wrapped up and sent on my way to my new home in with ESE Direct in Norwich, Norfolk.
14-03-18 - Taking a final look (through my protective robes!), at beautiful Kendal. It's been a happy home.
10-03-18 - Evelyn applying the final touches to my uniform.
06-03-18 - Evelyn gives us an artist's eye view of gorgeous Jack, it made him feel very tall.
28-02-18 - The Beast From The East was on the attack and heralded Snow Day! Checking out the view of the snow from the safety of my warm nest!
20-02-18 - My foot. This was just a little tickly!
14-02-18 - Admiring the Cumbrian view
06-01-18 - Arriving at my artist's house in Kendal. Looking forward to getting out of these noisy clothes!
