The Insect Photography of Levon Biss
Microsculpture is a ground breaking project by the British photographer Levon Biss. It presents insect specimens from the Oxford University Museum of Natural History like never before. These images reveal an unexpected and often breathtaking beauty and make visible the many intricate adaptations to the form of insects – what entomologists call their microsculpture.
Microsculpture is a unique exhibition that presents insects like never before. The clarity and detail in the up to three metre prints brings normally unseen beauty to the audience, allowing them to study these stunning creatures in minute detail. The exhibition provides unique visual experience and celebrates the beauty of the natural world.

It’s payback time! Patrick set his latest novel in Weston-super-Mare and this summer he’ll be going back there to brave the locals. Actually they shouldn’t be too offended because he rather fell in love with the place in the course of his research, which shows in the book.
He’ll be talking in Weston’s beautifully refurbished museum in the old Gaslight Company building.
Tickets are £6, books will be on sale and there’ll be a pay bar at the museum.
Showcase of local archaeology including: a local history fair, object identification and metal detected finds, Iron Age spinning and weaving by costumed demonstrators, join the Young Archaeologists’ ‘Rusty’ Club and drop in children’s activities.

Bring the whole family to the museum to enjoy a FREE traditional Punch and Judy show, a British seaside favourite. Shows will take place in our beautiful covered courtyard at 11am, 1pm and 3pm each Friday during August. Shows are performed by our wonderful, local Punch and Judy Professor – Paul Wheeler.
The show will be a traditional and historical one. As such it will contain scenes of comedic violence in a slap-stick style.
