National Insect Week returns in 2020

Niddfest: Steven Falk, Bees of Great Britain and Ireland

Sunday, June 17, 2018 - 15:30 to 16:30

Imagine a world with no flowers, fruit, no chocolate, or coffee. All of these things are here thanks to the hard work of our bees, spreading pollen from flower to flower. But our native pollinators are in decline …We’re all aware that bees are vital to the natural world, but how much do you really know about these amazing creatures?

Steven Falk, the author of the definitive Field Guide to the Bees of Great Britain and Ireland, is one of the UK’s leading experts on bees and will take you on a journey of discovery – you’ll never look at a bee in quite the same way again!

Advance booking via eventbrite.

This event is part of Niddfest, a celebration of nature in writing for adults and children.

Cost details

£8 adult, £4 child


Please note that access to The Playhouse auditorium is via two curving staircases each of 15 steps.
