bug visit in school

Bugfest is currently visiting schools during the crisis.

We use HD cameras that we can plug into your projector for extra close up images, and bring surgical scrub for hand hygiene (surgical scrub kills corona viruses and carries on working for six hours). You can of course use alcohol gel on top of that for extra peace of mind – we cannot be too careful!

Please get in touch to discuss how we can provide you with a safe and as covid secure a visit as possible for you.

Detailed covid risk assessment, public liability insurance and enhanced supply teaching DBS certificate available on request.


If you are too far away, we can also provide you with a virtual on-line visit from our very own, purpose built Bugfest studio, with supporting teaching and learning resources at reduced rates of £100 per hour + VAT. Book a whole day of five sessions for £60 + VAT per session (£300) and save £100 off the price of a normal full day visit.

Please email us for more info about our virtual lessons.

We have the best party packages out there.

Very much copied, but never surpassed, the Bugfest parties are unbeatable, and will leave lifelong memories of an amazing time had by all.

For school visits we send a qualified teacher.
