Meetings & Events 2023


Members Meetings


The first meeting in 2023 will be our AGM in January and we have developed a programme for the remainder of the year.

Meetings are held at Burnham Nurseries and all start at 1.30pm, except for auctions which will start at 1.00pm.

The latest information will be in our monthly newsletter and on Facebook at @devonorchids.




The Society hosts an Annual Show open to the public and this will be Sunday 7th May 2023  at Budleigh Salterton (chosen to avoid a clash with the King's Coronation)

An Autumn Show will also be held at Burnham Nurseries Sunday 15th October 2023

The Society also mounts displays at other shows to which it is invited and those we are attending are included in the programme below.
