BUTTERFLY PARK OPEN DAY & ART TRAIL


15 April 2010   

New Ferry Butterfly Park is hosting an Open Day & Art Trail on Sunday 2nd May 2010.  The event will begin at 11am and last until 4pm.

Entry will be free for everyone.  Activities will include

  • Woodland Craft Demonstrations

  • Art and Print Workshops

  • Art and Craft Sale

  • Face Painting

  • BBQ

  • Nature Walks

  • Childrens Butterfly Quiz

  • Tombola

The Butterfly Park has an artist in residence. Carol Ramsay has been working alongside the Butterfly Park team and will be curating a temporary sculpture trail by local artists using recycled materials on the site of the local nature reserve during the summer.

Carol also hopes to start using an empty space during the summer in New Ferry. She will be based there as an artists studio and using the space as an interim visitor centre for the butterfly park. This would also be a place where local people could meet to talk about their memories of New Ferry and their hopes and aspirations for the future. Carol hopes that eventually local people could also volunteer to work within the visitor centre as a point of local contact and source of information for the Park.  Read Carol's blog.
