About Bugfest

Bugfest prides itself on being animal friendly and cruelty free - in other words, we no longer believe it is fair or ethical or humane, no matter what the argument for it, to drag reptiles and mammals all over the country in plastic boxes. It causes stress and unnecessary suffering to the animals that invariably lead to illnesses requiring veterinary intervention and further stress to the animals. If you want reptiles then sorry, we aren't the guys for you.

If however you truly love animals and respect their needs and wellbeing, and you want an experienced presenter (ten years), with the ability to manage groups of children from ten to several hundred, then look no further. Bugfest's presenter, Nick Wadham is an experienced TRUE life-long Natural Historian with forty years of experience.

Through Bugfest, Nick has performed The Wild and Deadly Show live on stage to thousands at BBC Children in Need events, appeared live on stage at Carfest North and South since it began in 2012 and confirmed for 2018, presented a live outside broadcast for BBC South in 2015, performed for Channel Four Super Vet Noel Fitzpatrick at the National Pet Show, presented live for Secret World's Wild and Deadly Wednesdays, raising funds for the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured British wildlife, organises the Bugfest entomological fairs and created Invert Shows UK, and despite all this - is so laid back and down to earth.

Having qualified teaching experience, public liability insurance and an on-line live DBS, means that your events or parties are in the safest and most experienced hands there is, and that your children, or indeed pupils, will have the best time possible as well as learn about the animals in a way that is inimitable.
