2018 annual show

ANNUAL FESTIVAL

CHIPPING SODBURY TOWN HALL

14 April 2018

Once again our annual festival was held in the Chipping Sodbury Town Hall. A spacious venue with lots of room for exhibits from other Orchid Societies, sales desks and a comfortable corner for tea and cakes. We were fortunate to also have a separate room for talks and demonstrations of orchid culture.

We were very pleased to be able to put on another magnificent display from plants loaned by our members.

The talks were a big hit and were well attended.

Tips on which orchids to choose and how to keep them in good health were just what the audience wanted.

Burnham Nurseries and Laurence Hobbs Orchids once again provided a large display of orchids for sale.

The Devon Orchid Society provided another display of stunning orchids and also gained the Best in Show Award.

The Cheltenham Orchid Society put on a marvellous display.

These displays were complemented by another glorious show from the Wessex Society

The wonderful displays were enough to take your breath away but energy was soon replenished by the rounds of sandwiches, tea and cakes magnificently prepared by the members and running the all day refreshment table.

As usual we gave out awards for the best orchids in their class and also for the best all round orchids.
