The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect at Coughton Court
Welcome to the Butterfly effect | © National Trust/Myton Hospice

This summer The Butterfly Effect is coming to Coughton Court in partnership with The Myton Hospices. Taking place between Friday 26 July and 11 August, Coughton will see more than 1000 locally crafted, red, metal butterflies on display in the grounds.

The Butterfly Effect

This installation is celebrating the lives of loved ones who are no longer with us, each butterfly will represent a loved one. It is said that the smallest movement of a butterfly’s wings have the power to change the weather on the other side of the world and by the same token small acts of support have the power to make a big difference. The Myton Hospices believe that everyone matters for every single moment of their life. They focus on enhancing life when cure is no longer an option, supporting people living with a life-limiting illness and their families.
