Norwich is to be invaded by a swarm of bugs – but keep your insect repellent at bay.
The dozen bugs, which are sculptures, will inhabit three floors of intu Chapelfield from Saturday, August 31 to Saturday, September 28 as part a national tour.
The tour was launched by TV presenter and wildlife expert Chris Packham at intu Lakeside in June last year.
And alongside supersize honeybees visitors can expect the buzzing of phones as the bugs will be able to send text messages with interesting facts about nature.
The Big Bug Tour was launched as research revealed being closer to nature makes us 67pc happier.

Mr Packham said: "More needs to be done to reconnect people with nature and start caring for and realising the importance of the bugs in your backyard. intu's Big bugs on tour is shining a big magnifying glass on this and is a fantastic initiative to alert to the importance of nature in our lives."
An earlier version of this article said Chris Packham would be at intu Chapelfield on Saturday, August 31, as part of the Big Bug Tour but he won't. We're sorry for the mistake.
