Over the summer Bugfest visited lots of local towns on a play-days road show organised by the local council. There Nick and the bugs met thousands of people, all eager to gaze at a goliath or screw up their nose at a snail. Nick was able to cure long-standing phobias and dispel the myths about our creepy crawly crew. The summer also saw Bugfest putting on a display for the Phasmid Study Group bi-annual meeting at the Natural History Museum in London, which raised Bugfest’s profile and status among the invertebrate fraternity.
With only a few weeks to go until Bugfest 6 we have already secured some top notch names and stands with a bevy of followers promising to attend the day itself. Nick has taken over the organisation this year due to my work commitments and present ill health. The local paper have asked him to write a column promoting Bugs and the Bugfest 6 event on 26th February and we were lucky enough to have a photographer visit the house on probably the day I felt most ill! Luckily he only wanted to take pictures of spiders. An ailing grey lady just wouldn’t do it for anyone!
