Programme

Provisional Programme of Events for 2022/3

We provide members with a varied programme of events throughout the year which includes talks by experts, practical sessions as well as more informal gatherings to simply meet other people who are passionate about orchids. We welcome suggestions for future meetings. For full information on where we meet, including directions, see our Meetings page.

Please note that this is a provisional programme and may be subject to change. If you intend to travel any distance to one of our meetings, please contact us in advance to confirm arrangements. For Edinburgh meetings contact Robert Jones (0131 445 2745) and for Glasgow meetings contact Alan Mackenzie (07802 796789). Alternatively email us at info@scottishorchid.org or use the Contact Us page.

It is appreciate that not everybody is not able to travel to Edinburgh or Glasgow so in addition to the events below, we hold regular on-line meetings via Zoom details of which are sent out to members by email.

We also exhibit at other orchid shows throughout the UK and any that we are attending are highlighted. This is a good way of raising the profile of the Society as well as meeting other like minded enthusiasts.
