Writhlington School is not just famous for Orchids! Anyone who came to the Orchid Festival back in September will remember that we have an awesome new theatre. This theatre is really going to come into it’s own when it’s used in a couple of weeks for the school’s production of My Fair Lady:
We are delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale, and can be purchased by calling the Box Office on 07779061067.
There are some amazing flowers around but few can match Bulbophyllum Elizabeth Ann. Here is Heather with a real specimen of a plant carrying eighteen flower spikes!
A great big ‘Happy Birthday’ is in order today, to Simon Pugh-Jones!
Not only is Simon the teacher in charge of the Orchid Project, but is also the main source of enthusiasm behind everything we do! I hope you’ll join me in wishing him a very Happy Birthday!
It was during the Writhlington Orchid Festival that we realised just how much we loved opening up the greenhouses to the public. It was great fun and we decided that we need to do it more often – to give you a chance to see all of the orchids that we grow at school, and not just the few that happen to be in flower for a show!
This gave rise to our brand new ‘Upcoming Events‘ page! Every date you could possibly need, it’s basically your one-stop for orchid events at Writhington (and further afield).
