This wonderful piece of ephemera is a from a time well before the Ants Council was a twinkling. However, this is just the kind of entertainment the Ants Council would joyfully sponsor.
Above is a typical ant costume from the 1970's
Above is a sign from Seeth & Bidwell's Great Ant Show c.1930.
The Ants Council was founded in the 1950's to provide funding for the kinds of insect performance that do not fit the norm. Long ignored by Government funded arts organisations, insect performance has flourished in recent times. We pride ourselves that this is, in small part, due to our own involvement in the sector.
A new round of grants, available from the Ants Council, will be announced soon.
