Jarrold delighted to welcome GoGoHares 2018

Jarrold are delighted to welcome the GoGo Hares 2018 as Norfolk children’s charity Break celebrate 50 years of helping young people in Norfolk in partnership with Wild at Art.

On the 24th June 50 hares were placed in Norwich and a further 18 were located around Norfolk. These hares form the city and county trails, each with it’s own unique prize. Jarrold are delighted to have Captain Jack Rabbit and Honey Bunny at St James Mill and Mr Harebean in the Jarrold Store.

Captain Jack Rabbit was designed by artist Jo Fiske with Norfolk’s naval history in mind. Norfolk coastal towns were a traditional haunt of smugglers and pirates. Jack even comes with his own map to help him navigate the Norfolk waterways.

Honey Bunny by artist Katy Stevens is inspired by a love of botanicals, insects and the natural world. With the endless and often surprising colour combinations of flowers, diverse shapes and infinite variety of structure, size and scale, they provide an irresistible palette to work from. Honey Bunny is crammed full of colours that are deep, rich and vibrant incorporating blooms, bees and honeycombs with flashes of metallics and textures to create a visual feast.

Mr Harebean was created by artist Sally Adams who wanted to paint a city hare as a character from a book, so invented Mr Harebean and wrote a book about his adventures when he found a furry suit in his local charity shop. Sally presented her idea and book to the GoGoHare “Hare-brained ideas” team and they loved it! Break published the book and Jarrold embraced the idea by selling it and sponsoring the city hare too. Both Sally and Jarrold are donating all book sale commission to Break.

Further merchandise is available from the Jarrold shop at The Forum, selected Break shops around Norfolk and online with Jarrold
