Dippy at Night

25-26 and 28-30 October 2021
Dippy
Dippy at Night sees the much-loved dinosaur spectacularly lit up in an entirely new way in the Nave of Norwich Cathedral, giving visitors the chance to experience a different side to the nation’s favourite dinosaur in the final days of his nationwide tour.

You can also explore the rest of Dippy’s medieval home in all its evening splendour and discover even more dinosaurs under the moonlight in the Cloister.

Dippy at Night is open for five nights in Dippy’s last week - October 25, 26, 28, 29 and 30 from 7pm to 9.30pm. Please note that Dippy at Night is not open on Wednesday 27 October.

As well as seeing Dippy lit up in spectacular style by Viking Stage Lighting, people will also be able to enjoy the return of the 21 GoGoDiscover T. rex sculptures that decorated Norwich’s streets this summer. The T. rexes, which formed a citywide trail organised by children’s charity Break and Wild In Art, will all be on display under the stars in the Cathedral Cloister for Break’s Farewell for Now event that will also be open during the Dippy on Tour exhibition’s daytime opening hours.

Visitors will also be able to wander around the wider Dippy on Tour exhibition, with artist Mark Reed’s wave of 3,000 fish set to look especially stunning in the evening light, meanwhile the east end of the Cathedral will be open for people to explore the building’s magnificent Norman architecture by night.

Dippy at Night is open for five nights in Dippy’s last week - October 25, 26, 28, 29 and 30 from 7pm to 9.30pm. Please note that Dippy at Night is not open on Wednesday 27 October. Entry is free and there is no need to book in advance although people may need to queue during busy periods.
