Family Arts Festival: Magic Moth Creations
This Halloween, we’re on a mission to demystify moths!
Come and meet the Butterfly Conservation team and see some of their not-so-spooky live moth specimens (subject to weather the previous evening). Learn the truth about these “butterflies of the night” from some of the team's moth experts and even have a go at crafting your very own moth-like figures with the free materials provided. You could even try wearing some antennae for day!
This event is FREE to attend and will take place in our Café Bar, so grab a drink and join us. The activities on offer are most suitable for kids aged 6-11 and their families, though all are welcome to attend and we will have colouring in available too for little ones.
Moth specimens are trapped ethically by the Butterfly Conservation team using a light trap one night, and set free the next.
Butterfly Conservation is a British charity devoted to saving butterflies, moths and their habitats throughout the UK. Munching Caterpillars is a Butterfly Conservation initiative designed to get kids fired up about butterflies, moths and their caterpillars. It is funded by the People’s Postcode Lottery, Earnest Cook Trust and Bristol Naturalists.
This event is part of the Bristol Family Arts Festival - a month long citywide celebration of family creativity, with a packed programme of events for all ages. Taking place throughout October, join in at venues across the city for music, theatre, storytelling, drawing, making and much more.
Why not make a day of it and catch a screening of ace stop-motion family fantasy Coraline at 13:00 on the same day.
