About Little Giants

Buzzy, the giant honeybee, leads you into the wonderful world of bees in this delightful, interactive show. Learn how a bee’s body is different from ours and find out how bees and flowers work in harmony together. Take a tour of a beehive, make pretty pollen trail patterns, and suck up nectar just like a real-life bee.

Please note: This event is part of our family science playground at City Art Centre - a day pass is required for entry.

Bookable

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Little Giants are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
