What’s it all about?

Have you ever wondered what tiny little insects look like up close? Well here’s your chance as intu gets set to bring the outdoors indoors right across the UK.

Throughout this year and next, we’ll be taking 12 giant, intricately-designed and extremely lifelike bugs to 13 intu shopping centres across the UK. From honey bees to ladybirds, you’ll have the chance to examine these creatures up close. It will be a fascinating and inspirational look into the world at your feet; one that’s both educational and fun. So, get closer to nature come rain or shine and check out the tour at your local intu centre!
