How much will a bug visit to school cost?
Because every school has different needs, numbers of classes and timing requirements, it isn’t always easy to give a ball park figure.

The Best Bug Visits to Schools EVER!
Children love the active delivery of the sessions we provide and the “Horrible Histories” style of delivery. Your class sessions are highly interactive, allowing children, and teaching staff the opportunity to engage with and handle the animals.
Bespoke sessions directly linked to your curriculum areas such as:
Humans and animals
Christian values and ethos respected and supported
Bugfest literally takes the stress away!
Planning a zoo visit takes up a lot of your time, a coach can cost up to £700, it is nearly impossible for you to enjoy the day, and your itinerary is so rushed and hurried, the children are lucky to get any quality learning out of it as well.
A Bugfest visit is a fraction of the cost, and the children can get to learn about the amazing invertebrates we bring into your classroom up close – and in many cases get to handle them – with the exception of tarantulas and scorpions; we take child protection very seriously and want to protect them from potential skin and eye irritation from kicked tarantula hairs.
With over a thousand presentations to our name, we bring an exciting and exuberant approach to learning. Children are quickly engaged by our appropriate sense of humour, and those of a nervous nature are fast to find their courage and face their own creepy crawly fears.
