Williamson Park Pavilion Café re-opens, win free entry to the Butterfly House

Celebrations will be taking place at Lancaster's Williamson Park this Saturday to mark the reopening of the pavilion café - and there's a chance to win free entry to the Park's world-famous Butterfly House up for grabs.

The café has undergone a dramatic refurbishment and is launching a brand new menu of delicious locally sourced products.

Café staff, who are very excited about the new changes, say they will be offering a warm welcome to visitors. The new menu has been developed using the very best of local produce including the renowned Atkinson’s coffee and tea, Lathoms handmade cakes, delicious chutney and jams from the Hawkeshead Relish Company and Singletons speciality cheeses.

Opening at 10.00am on Saturday 22 May, throughout the day there will also be free games and fun activities for children.

Lancaster City Council is also offering 20 families the opportunity to visit the butterfly house, which has also been renovated, and mini beast cave for free on Saturday. The first twenty callers will win the family passes - telephone 01524 33318 to be in with a chance.

Regular visitors to the park will see more changes to come over the next few weeks. Lots of the locally made products are going to be available to purchase in the shop, so if you like what you try in the café – you can buy some to take home from the gift shop.

The Butterfly House has also been renovated and the rain forest atmosphere is filled with beautiful and exotic tropical butterflies.

• Admission to the Butterfly House and mini beast cave on the day is at a special rate of only £2 per person on the day: call 01524 33318 for more information. Tours of the butterfly house and mini beasts will take place at 12.00pm and 1.00pm.

• Lancaster City Council Play Rangers will be in the park from 10am - 12.00pm offering a range of games and activities and free play.
