We are really excited that the British Orchid Congress will include a Special Science and Conservation symposium on Saturday 27th October.
The first ever symposium under the auspices of OCI includes lectures exploring a wide range of orchid research. Speakers include a number of early career scientists and the event is expected to generate some lively debate!
The OCI symposium forms part of the British Orchid Congress. The Congress runs from Friday 26th October until Sunday 28th October and features orchid displays and sales from across Europe as well as a separate lecture programme and tours of the Writhlington School Orchid Project facilities. Registrants for the OCI symposium will have free entry to the British Orchid Congress on Saturday 27th.
Registration for the OCI symposium costs just £10, Registration for the full three day congress (including the OCI symposium and many other events) costs just £25. Further details and an online/downloadable registration form can be found at www.wsbeorchids.org/boc

The West Country Wood Carvers will add a little extra to the Orchid Congress in October. The group will be demonstrating their work on Saturday and Sunday (27th & 28th Oct) to visitors and selling some amazing orchid carvings like this Cattleya coccinea in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.
Before the end of term we had a film crew come to film us for there program on orchids. They filmed the greenhouse last time but didn’t have time for the lab. Today they came back to finish what they started.
We have now got the trophies for BOC. They still need to be engraved so they don’t look that much at the moment, but we are exited all the same.
