With the summer holidays well underway, what better time is there to get close to nature and find out more about the insects living in parks and woodlands across Milton Keynes?

Big Bugs on Tour has arrived at intu Milton Keynes, bringing adults and children face-to-face with 12 giant models of British bugs.

The initiative by intu features 12 supersized, indigenous bugs including the honeybee, ladybird, hornet, swallowtail butterfly and the nut weevil. It is on display at intu Milton Keynes until the end of August.

Once you’ve seen these huge models of the insects, you’ll definitely want to find out more about them – so why not download our special Big Bugs on Tour factsheet, created in partnership with intu Milton Keynes?

Packed full of facts about the bugs appearing at the shopping centre, it also gives some handy hints about where to carry out your own bug hunt.

The Parks Trust runs bug hunting sessions as part of its Nature Explorers summer holiday events, held at various locations across the city on 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th August. For more information visit our events calendar here: https://www.theparkstrust.com/whats-on
