It's A Bug's World


22 April 2017 10:00 - 13:00

Location: Shortstown Village Hall, Southcote, Shortstown, Bedford, MK42 0FB, UK.

Event description

A tropical jungle comes to Bedford.

It's A Bug's World turns Shortstown Village Hall into a tropical jungle this April, as it welcomes a huge number of guests who are ready to show off and teach you a few things about themselves!

This FREE informal, educational exhibition is an exciting opportunity to get up close and personal to a wide variety of invertebrates and see for yourselves that, despite their reputation, they're not creepy crawley at all.

There will be many different species of invertebrates on display; snails, spiders, scorpions, millipedes, crabs, beetles, locusts and lots more!

Animal handling experiences available with their keepers.

I'm A Celebrity bush-tucker trial ~ eat a creepy crawley carrot cake!

A variety of items for sale such as invertebrates, animal equipment, gifts and other animal-themed related goods.

Information and interactive activities to get you inspired.

Qualified and experienced keepers will answer your queries and questions and guide you through how the animals live in the wild and how we can take care of them properly at home as pets.

Additonal information on Little Lizard Rescue and IHS Anglia is available, both of which are committed to the on-going research and propogation of all invertebrates, reptile, amphibian and chelonian species and raising money for such a cause.

Excluding the sales, the exhibition is aimed at children but adults will love it too.

Parking is restricted at the Village Hall and it is requested that local residents walk to the event.  There are free parking areas within the New Cardington area in Beauvais Square, please park respectfully.
