Event Description

Whatever the weather a visit this half term to the Butterfly Farm is a unique and spectacular day out. Walk amongst some of the world’s most beautiful and colourful butterflies in a unique rainforest environment with splashing waterfalls and fish-filled pools. You may even see a butterfly hatch from its pupa in the Emerging Cage!”

During half term, 21st-29th October, children and adults can discover some of the amazing creatures that live at the Butterfly Farm with our popular ‘Meet the Minibeast’ handling sessions. These take place twice daily with the Education Team in the Discovery Zone. Visitors will be able to hold a variety of stick insects, African land snails, giant millipedes and even Madagascan cockroaches!  There will also be opportunities to get up close to the tailless whip scorpion!

October 27th sees the launch of ‘Leafcutter’, an exciting new children’s book especially written for the Butterfly Farm, featuring the adventures of Annie set within a leafcutter ant colony!

Author and Illustrator John Eames and Nicola Dennis will be at the farm to launch the book.

They will be signing copies and reading excerpts from the book throughout the day.
