Join us for the Big Draw Festival 2022, and doodle the afternoon away using our insect specimens as inspiration.

You will also have the chance to look at insects under the microscope, meet scientists who study bees, and join in with insect-themed games. This event is free. Drop-in, no booking required!

This event is brought to you by the HOPE for the Future project, which is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, thanks to National Lottery players.
