Clifton Suspension Bridge has had a ‘Big Bug’ makeover
The Clifton Suspension Bridge was lit up with giant creepy crawlies between 7:30pm and 23:00pm on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th March.
We teamed up with technical event production company Sounds Commercial to transform Clifton Suspension Bridge to officially launch the our ‘Big Bugs’ exhibition.
Our new residents include some of the world’s most popular species, such as the 7-spot ladybird, Mexican red kneed tarantula, firefly and the red tailed bumble bee, all of which will be brought to life using state-of-the-art technology and animatronics.
The adventure begins on Saturday 28 March and visitors can see the Big Bugs every day until Sunday 6 September 2015. This free exhibition will offer budding bug rangers, old and young, the chance to get up-close to amazing, moving, hissing, and even water-spraying bugs.
Dr Bryan Carroll CEO of Bristol Zoological Society, said: “We are very excited to unveil our giant, life-like bugs. We are sure that the Big Bugs will prove just as popular as the giant animatronic dinosaurs we displayed in 2013 following their popularity in 2012.”
He added: “As well as being fantastic fun, this exhibition also presents a great opportunity to tell our guests more about the creepy crawlies we all know and love, in an interactive and exciting way.”
Bristol Zoo Gardens is a conservation and education charity and relies on the generous support of the public not only to fund its important work in the zoo, but also its vital conservation and research projects spanning five continents.
