Ploddy's Prehistoric Adventures Trail

24 October 2020 until 1 November 2020
Ploddys Prehistoric Adventures Trail

Ploddy’s Prehistoric Adventures will be returning to Norwich Cathedral for the October half-term holiday!

Ploddy, the Cathedral's resident dinosaur puppet, inspired a series of free trails around the Cathedral during the summer holidays and this half-term will see the return of The Environment Trail.

The free trail sheet will give children the chance to explore some of the creatures and elements of nature represented in the Cathedral’s ancient surroundings.

From Saturday 24 October until Sunday 1 November, families can follow the trail when the Cathedral is open to general visitors - Sunday 1pm-2.30pm, Monday to Friday 10am-4pm, and Saturday 10am-3pm.

Trail sheets will be available to pick up at the Cathedral's Hostry and every child will also be able to claim a free gift from the Cathedral shop to help them complete their trail sheet!

Ploddy’s Prehistoric Adventures is part of the Cathedral’s countdown to the Natural History Museum's Dippy on Tour exhibition arriving at the Cathedral in January 2021.

Dippy had been scheduled to be on display in the Cathedral in Summer 2020 but due to the coronavirus pandemic the tour has been delayed and he will now be on display from 11 January 2021.

Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure is being brought to Norwich Cathedral and visitors across the UK by the Natural History Museum in partnership with the Garfield Weston Foundation, and supported by Dell EMC and Williams & Hill. Barratt and Cooke are the lead regional sponsor for the exhibition at Norwich Cathedral.

Safety is the number one priority at Norwich Cathedral. The Cathedral has been awarded Visit Britain and Visit England’s We’re Good to Go industry standard and consumer mark as recognition that the Cathedral is following Government and public health guidance with regard to Covid-19 and has taken all the necessary steps to help ensure people’s safety.
