Snakes, frogs and creepy-crawlies will be on display in St Albans city centre as part of a ‘Natural World’ event.

Christopher Place will be hosting a Mini Beast Roadshow on Saturday, June 3 from 11am to 4pm. A team of animal experts will be on hand to answer questions about the creatures, and visitors will have a chance to hold snakes, giant snails, cockroaches and giant frogs.

The roadshow is free for visitors.

Centre manager Catherine Morris said: “The roadshow is making its return following on from a very successful visit last year and is part of a series of free events we have planned over the coming months at the centre.”

The centre is also hosting the Meraki Festival, folk dancers and a dog day as part of its programme of weekend entertainment. On days when there is no live entertainment the central lawn area will provide activities for children including a mud kitchen and tool bench built by local company Cottonmill Carpentry.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
