Calendar of Orchid Plant Sales, Orchid Shows, Orchid Talks & Orchid Events 2024

Welcome to my calendar of orchid plant sales, orchid auctions, orchid shows, orchid talks, orchid garden openings, and orchid events!

How to Use this Calendar

NB: This calendar is dynamic and will update as I add new events.  Please don’t waste paper or resources printing this calendar and remember to check back for new events as I add them!

I have grouped the events by geographical area, so you can use the filter hierarchy to select events near you – e.g., just click ‘Surrey’ to limit the page to only display events in the county of Surrey or click ‘South East’ if you would prefer to see events in that part of the country.

To search for events by month – just click on your preferred month from the red headings below.

NB: Click on ‘Long Running Events‘ to see events lasting seven days or more. 

If you’re looking for orchid talks and meetings to attend online, please click here.

When you’ve finished and want to come back up to the top of the page, you’ll find an upwards facing arrow on the right hand side of the page.  Click on this arrow to be whizzed safely back up to the top of the page, saving you time scrolling!

NB: Please don’t print this calendar out – I update this calendar regularly.  I will be adding more dates and events in the coming weeks and months!

If I have missed your orchid event, contact me with the full details, and I will add your event to my calendar.

So, without further ado, here are the dates and details for your diaries….
