Buzzfest at the Fort

In October 2022 we brought home the importance of bees and other insects to the biodiversity of a sustainable planet.

The street theatre initiative Insectopolis brought a swarm of its human-sized bees, ants, dragonflies and butterflies to The Fort.

As well as explaining the vital role such creatures play in our food production, the fabulous creatures made great selfie subjects for our shoppers.

And we brought real bees to The Fort too, with the shopping park’s own beekeeper Stephen Corbett bringing along a hive complete with bees to show shoppers how they make honey.

The day will be fun, educational, visually interesting and will underline The Fort’s own environmental and sustainability drive.
