ketts oak hare

All hares will be live on the trail 24th June to 8th Sept 2018. The trail is brought to you by Norfolk Children's Charity Break. We look forward to seeing you there.

All City hares will be auctioned on 11th October at the Forum Norwich.

The next sculpture trail to take to the streets of Norwich will be made up of hares, a charity has announced.

The decorated fibre glass creatures follow in the footsteps of elephants, gorillas and most recently dragons last summer.

The hares are to be unveiled in 2018, the 50th year of Norfolk charity Break, which helps vulnerable children.

Each sculpture is sponsored, decorated by an artist, group or school and auctioned once the trail ends.

The Go Go Trail figures - made up of three different designs - are due to be revealed later.

County Trail Hare - Ketts Oak, is an oak tree is named after Robert and William Kett who assembled a group of men at the tree in 1549 in what was to become Kett’s Rebellion.

 

Their grievances concerned the enclosing of the common lands and the rising cost of living. The rebellion failed and Robert and William Kett were hanged.

 

The oak was situated in Mousehold Heath.  The design consists wildlife native to the Heath making the old oak their home.
