This is an in-person event, hosted on the University of Birmingham Campus. More information about the venue will be available once bookings are open.

Storytellers weave a magical spell as they take you out on safari from their amazing bug hotel leading you into a fantastical world of creatures that creep, crawl, fly, flutter and buzz. Incredible stories and facts from across the world burst into life in this stunning touring show with original music, an ingenious set and featuring a host of incredible puppets.

Insect safari is inspired by a wealth of fascinating and astonishing insect facts and international stories that voice the myths and folklore of insects from the farthest reaches of the globe and closer to home. Take heed of the wisdom of the worlds oldest spider who roamed the lush, tropical swamps of the West Midlands over 300 million years ago and join us in celebrating the wonderous world of everything that creeps and crawls.
