About the event

Discover all about the wonder of insects with the amazing travelling insect house, Bug Bonanza!

The UK’s largest travelling insect show gives you the chance to meet a huge range of live invertebrates, including giant insects through to the amazingly beautiful Mantids and a whole range of fascinating mini beasts in between. You even have the chance of holding some of them if you’re feeling brave!

As part of our National Insect Week exhibition supported by the Royal Entomological Society, you won’t want to miss this exciting event bursting with incredible insect species. A great chance for all ages to get a real hands on personal encounter with the insect stars of your favourite stories.
