DRAGON SCULPTURES TAKE OVER NEWPORT
In a move reminiscent of the Elephant Parade in London, a collection of 60 five-feet high SuperDragonswill be brightening the streets of Newport this July. The dragons have been created by local artists and will make a trail from the riverside to the city centre and around the surrounding neighbourhoods. Trail maps will be available on the website nearer the time, but if you really can’t wait to see them, a selection will be shown at Tredegar house on Sun 18 Jul. The designs include one made of recycled bottle tops, one modelled on Elvis, one depicting the tale of King Arthur, and even a golf themed dragon to celebrate Newport being the 38th host city for The Ryder Cup.
The project is hoped to result in thousands of people getting out and about, following the trail and taking greater pride in Newport. The event will run from Mon 19 July till Sat 9 Oct- after this time, the SuperDragons will be auctioned and the proceeds donated to Tenovus and Born Free.
