We will be celebrating Norfolk Day this year dinosaur-style with a Prehistoric Picnic in the cloisters!

Families are invited to come dressed in their best dinosaur-themed clothes and enjoy a picnic in the beautiful surrounds from 12pm until 3pm.

Children will also be able to have fun meeting Ploddy, the Cathedral's resident dinosaur puppet, and take part in the first of a series of dinosaur-inspired trails around the Cathedral this summer.

The Cathedral's summer of dinosaur fun for children is part of the countdown to the Natural History Museum's Dippy on Tour exhibition arriving at the Cathedral in 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 until 21 March 2021.

Ahead of Dippy’s visit, children will this summer still be able to enjoy a packed programme full of dinosaur fun with Ploddy, the Cathedral’s resident dinosaur puppet, leading the festivities that include trails, a prehistoric picnic and an art competition and exhibition.

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.
