We realise this event doesn’t happen till Easter but knowing how much kids like bugs and creepy crawlies, we suspect this could be a sell-out.

Calling all mini-explorers, the RSPB need your help to discover the weird and wonderful world of minibeasts! They will be bug hunting, listening to bug stories and getting creative with natural materials – There’s lots of fun to keep you busy!
