Andrew Smith's Library & Summer Scheme Workshop

We have designed this workshop specifically with libraries and summer schemes in mind. It is designed to last one full hour and is essentially a simplified version of our popular classroom based Minibeast Workshop. The workshop is intended to be a fun and exciting introduction to the wonderful world of animals and we use a wide range of vertebrates and invertebrates to our make our visit special. You will always see a tortoise, lizard, snake, and giant toad. We then have wide range of invertebrates - ranging from giant African snails, crabs, millipedes, exotic cockroaches, giant stick insects and spider. We may use, if in season, banana beetles, which the children can fly for short distances! More than enough, to entertain and educate your library group for one full hour.

This workshop is competitively priced at £100 for an hour in the holiday season: if you are a local South London library. We ask only one thing of you - parking. We must be able to park, preferably off road, outside your library. You cannot expect us to park down the road and then carry heavy boxes of animals to your library!

Prices range from £100 to £120 for a full hour. A whole day (in which you may be able to squeeze in three local libraries) is £170. A half day: two libraries £150.

We suggest that if you are a librarian who is keen on bug shows, talk to your fellow librarians, in other libraries, and make a day of it!
