About this event

Flex your muscles and practise your lunges, it’s time for the Great Insect Games!

Join your hosts, the gym junkie grasshoppers and watch the hare-brained events unfold. Who will win at synchronised swimming, a spider or a slug?! How will a butterfly fare at weightlifting?! How does a snail wear boxing gloves? Support your team and even become an Insectolympian yourself.

With new music by HMS Morris and plenty of cheekiness, join us for this bug infested half hour of surreal silliness.

Created by Familia De La Noche with new music from HMS Morris and produced in association with Wales Millennium Centre, Articulture, Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru, Theatr Clwyd, Aberystwyth Arts Centre and Cardiff Summer of Smiles.
