Pestival helped hundreds of people overcome their fear of insects at a packed event in the Forum at the Wellcome Collection one Thursday night. See some great images from the event.


Everyone got up close and personal with the amazing flea circus, delusional parasitosis, magical contagion and disgust. And by the numbers that turned up, the disgust element was far outweighed by fascination and enjoyment.


Our Entomophobia @ Wellcome Collection event was part of the Collection's 'Miracles & Charms' exhibitions.


As well as the event gallery, here are some more photos we took from a mobile phone during the night (hence the quality!):
