Cardiff is set to host ‘The Great Insect Games’ on the 19th August.

The Great Insect Games | Trychfilod a’r Campau Campus is a fun, outdoor, interactive, bilingual musical show for primary school aged children and their grown-ups, where surreal silliness is the name of the game! 

Flik and Bob, the gym junkie grasshoppers invite families across Wales to join them for the glorious bug infested opening ceremony; warm up with insect aerobics and take part in the bug brained events. Who will win at synchronised swimming, the spider or the slug?! Can a butterfly do Taekwondo?! How does a snail wear boxing gloves? 

Expect lots of laughter, cheekiness, dancing, singing, jumping around and generally letting off steam in the fresh outdoors with some banging tunes courtesy of new music from talented Cardiff art-rock musicians Heledd Watkins and Sam Roberts. 

Perfect for children aged 4+ of all abilities, with shows presented both bilingually and Welsh only, The Great Insect Games | Trychfilod a’r Campau Campus is a great introduction to theatre for young people featuring themes of working together and looking after our environment.

This fun packed show will be sure to delight families in unexpected places across Wales this summer – a perfect antidote to the pandemic. The grasshoppers are a hardy lot so audiences can expect the show to go on come rain or shine (monsoons/hurricanes excepted!!).
