Dragon Dreaming - Lord Mayor's Procession - 11 July

It's been a year of dragons for Norwich - a whole flock of dragons camped out in the Forum earlier this year. Norwich itself is symbolised by a dragon, so it seemed to be the obvious candidate for a pedal-powered creation to represent Transition Norwich in this year's Lord Mayor's Procession.
The Procession is one of the most colourful and best-loved events of the year. The TN dragon will be making its first appearance so do volunteer to join us on the night if you can. Back to the Streets, an Arts Council England funded project is bringing international and national artists to work with local people on an exciting element of the parade.

Dragon construction is taking place in Belona's back garden in Waldeck Road. As this bulletin goes to press she has a beautiful shape and is being fleshed out with strips of theatrical backdrop and she will painted in the Transition colours of green and blue. There will be a dragon rider who will pedal her on a borrowed bike trailer through the city street. Transition volunteers will have the opportunity to leaflet the watching citizens of Norwich.

If you would like to help in her construction or on the day please contact Belona on 01603 250122 or email info@transitionnorwich.co.uk. Lord Mayor's Procession. .6.45-9pm, Norwich City Centre.
