About this event

Little ones and parents can learn together during our family-friendly bug hunting sessions. Activities are suitable for children of age 4-11 years and children must be supported by a guardian or parent during the session.

  • BUG HUNT: Explore the meadow using our equipment and wildlife identification guides – can you complete our minibeast challenge?
  • CRAFTS: Make some bug peg-puppets to take home with you or colour a beautiful bug mask!

Sessions are 1 hour long. Families can drop by and leave any time during their pre-booked session. Just come to our stall to sign in and out

Tickets are free of charge, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund
