National Insect Week returns in 2020

Insect Drawing & Minibeast Hunt at Little Belhus Country Park

Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 14:00 to 16:30

Learn to draw insects, in this one of a kind event.

You will hunt for insects on the way to our makeshift studio for the day and then receive expert tuition from professional artist Jo Beal.

The drawings you make will be used to create artwork for the park which, in turn will help to highlight to visitors the importance of the Country Park for insect life.
