Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm is urging its visitors to comply with Government regulations and wear a face covering when visiting the farm. It is the law in England that face coverings should be worn inside indoor visitor attractions.  

The team have worked hard to do everything they’ve been asked to do by the Government to ensure the farm is COVID safe to its visitors. In return it reminds anyone visiting that they kindly sanitise their hands, keep their social distance from other visitors, follow the one-way system and wear a face covering if they are not exempt. Unfortunately, the team at the farm has experienced some recent unpleasant and aggressive behaviour from visitors when asked to wear their face coverings.

Richard Lamb, Managing Director at Stratford Butterfly Farm, said. “If you are asked by a member of our staff to wear your face covering or to wear your face covering properly covering both your nose and your mouth and you are abusive or aggressive to any member of our team, then you are not welcome at the butterfly farm. You will be asked to leave immediately. Abusive and aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated.”

Stratford upon Avon Butterfly Farm re-opened in accordance with government COVID-19 regulations in place at the beginning of July. Since then they have warmly welcomed hundreds of visitors of all ages and from all walks of life to their beautiful display of tropical butterflies.
