A celebration of all things insect
Organised by the Royal Entomological Society, and supported by partner organisations throughout the UK and Europe, Insect Week is a celebration of all things insect.
Wherever you live, it’s an opportunity to take part in insect science, get to know insects, learn from experts, and have fun.
The next Insect Week will take place on 24 to 30 June 2024.
