Rolling into town on tour from the Natural History Museum, Dippy the Diplodocus will make his debut appearance at Norwich Cathedral. All 26 metres of him… While you’re there, head to the cloisters for a time tunnel installation that takes you back to the Jurassic, and experience Norfolk artist Mark Reed’s spectacular art piece, Your Waves Go Over Me. (Norwich Cathedral. July 13 – October 30)

Hopefully helping Dippy feel at home, Norwich’s latest GoGoDiscover trail features a troupe of twenty T.rexes. You’ll find the dino sculptures hiding all over the city, each one decorated by different artists in support of children’s charity, Break. Track them all down before they hibernate in the autumn. (Norwich. July 12 – September 11)

And if that’s not enough dinosaur fun, Brick Dinos are taking over the Forum for the school summer holidays. Masterfully crafted from Lego by brick artist, Warren Elsmore, the exhibition features a menagerie of dinosaur delights, from tiny insects to a massive four-meter-long raptor, Masiakasaurus. (The Forum, Norwich. July 19 – August 30)
