In a street performance which might have been dreamt up by the visionary architect Gaudi, a parade of giant insects will take over Roman Road.

Beautifully designed and operated by cycle power, watch out for a fantastical spider dwarfing cars, an energetic ant feasting on trees and a praying mantis staring into top floor windows! With wonderful music and special effects, these insects will advance with the Olympic Park in their sights!
