Programme of Events

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 programme may be subject to change. If you intend to travel any distance to any of these events, please contact the organisers 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 or use the CONTACT US page.

Zoom Meetings

It is appreciated that not everybody is able to travel to Edinburgh or Glasgow and so that everyone can have the opportunity to meet other members and ask advice, we hold regular online meetings via Zoom throughout the year. These are usually held monthly, either on a Tuesday or a Thursday starting at 7:30pm. The dates of any Zoom meeting will be included in the calendar below, but you must me a member of the Society to join in. To become a member of the Society, please visit our MEMBERSHIP

page. Details of how to join a meeting are sent out by email in advance.

Other Events

We also exhibit at other orchid shows throughout the UK and any that we are attending are listed below. This is a good way of raising the profile of the Society as well as meeting other like minded enthusiasts. Other significant orchid related events that we think you might be interested in are also listed. A full list of orchid shows in the UK can be found on the British Orchid Council’s Diary of Events page which can be viewed HERE. Horticulturist and Garden Writer Pumpkin Beth also has a calendar of orchid shows and other orchid related events in the UK, including orchid society meetings, on her website and is well worth a visit if you are looking for what’s on near you. The calendar can be viewed HERE.
