Members’ Meet the Creepy Crawlies

Members and Benefactors are invited to join us for an exclusive interactive talk about creepy crawlies in the Horniman’s Natural History Gallery and go behind the scenes with Assistant Curator Chris Hughes!

This event is for Members and Benefactors only.

Get up close to some of the Horniman’s creepy crawly collection including Wētā, Hawkmoths, Mantis, Scarab beetles, bees and two species named after Frederick John Horniman himself.

These tiny specimens might be small but Chris will explore how important they really are and what they get up to in nature when no one is watching!
