Entomophobia @ Wellcome Collection
Roll-up! Roll-up! Peer at what you fear
Pestival’s carnival of creepy curios will take you to the weirdest corners of entomophobia... let your curiosity run away with the circus.
See Flea Circus genius Tim Cockerill talk about his incredible show.
Thursday 19th January 18.00-22.00
What you'll experience
The many ways we have tried to anthropomorphise insects will be on display: dressing and taming them to quash our fears of the small and mysterious and somehow tame our fear and obsession with the small and precious.
So where does this fear come from? What is this wondrous sensation of magical contamination?
Pestival presents a circus of colour and colourful characters, insect-inspired performance and performing insects: bringing you face-to-face with your fears.
