Many orchid events take place around the country on a regular basis. Many of these events are organised by our affiliated societies, and others by member societies of the British Orchid Council.

The British Orchid Council, of which the OSGB is a member, lists a diary of events on its website and publishes this in its annual Year Book. Click on the link to visit see the Events Diary page of the British Orchid Council,[iframe]
