BugWorld Bush Tucker Trials @ the Albert Dock


Bug-sized family fun for National Family Week 2009

Do you fancy being like a celebrity on a Bush Tucker Trial and munching on a mealworm or crunching on a cricket?!

If so, the BugWorld Experience, which opens in Liverpool this summer, has teamed up with What’s Cooking to run some sampling with a difference, as part of National Family Week 2009.

From Sunday 24th to Friday 29th May, Liverpool’s Albert Dock will become a hive of activity as brave kids and adults alike will have the chance to sample worms, crickets and scorpions – if they dare! The event will take on the theme of the ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ Bush Tucker Trials, and visitors to What’s Cooking will be able to sample a variety of bug-themed dishes, free of charge, between 11am and 12pm daily.

Jenny Dobson, the BugWorld Experience general manager, said: “Our very own Bush Tucker Trials are a great excuse for families to enjoy a day out with a difference and learn about some of the animals which will be living at the BugWorld Experience. The bugs we will be serving up are all popular delicacies in other parts of the world and tasty alternatives to crisps and other snacks. Nowhere else in Britain could people get up close and personal to insects and bugs like this in a fun and educational way.”

The BugWorld Experience is the first of its kind in the UK and will show visitors the world through a bug’s eyes, testing their bravery, wit and skill with interactive challenges and games along the way. Guided through simulated environments from a rainforest to a savannah to the everyday British home, visitors will see, find out about and interact with the bugs that inhabit each.  If you get a taste for the bugs during National Family Week, there will also be an opportunity to sample further insect food delicacies from around the world when the attraction opens.

The BugWorld Experience will open to the public in July 2009. More information about the launch will be released shortly, in the meantime log on to www.bugworldexperience.co.uk.
