A Valentine’s date in 2019 like no other – ‘Sex in the Garden’

Erica McAlisterFilthy bed-bugs, traumatic insemination, the ‘Bobbit-style’ behaviour of bees and sexual suicide… it’s all going on in your home, in your bed and right outside your back door. “Think of a provincial 1980s nightclub: People eating each other, fighting one another and trying to find a mate. You never quite know how the evening’s going to go” Dr Erica McAlister, senior curator, the Natural History Museum 

Enjoy a candlelit three-course meal with optional insects and ‘insect roulette’, followed by a talk by Dr Erica McAlister, senior curator at the Natural History Museum.  

  • Insect roulette 
  • Quirky cocktails 
  • Q&A 

Scientist, author, star of radio and TV, Dr Erica McAlister will be sharing her love of insects as well as enlightening us with tales of their quirky, fascinating and often shocking behaviour – right outside our back door. Learn about ‘traumatic insemination  

Before sitting back to enjoy Erica’s saucy tales or entomological erotica, you’ll be treated to a bug-themed menu (insects optional) including a welcome cocktail, canapes, main course and dessert. 

Edible insects will be provided by Eat Grub — a boundary-breaking sustainable food brand that aims to revolutionise Western food culture by introducing insects as a staple part of it.
