On Sunday 5th and Monday 6th May Raby Castle will be hosting the 20th Anniversary of the Orchid Show which will feature fabulous displays of Orchids including many exotic and rare species.
We will be welcoming back the North East of England and Darlington Orchid Societies who always present some spectacular exhibits. They will be joined by orchid growers and sellers from all over the country who will gather to showcase some of the most beautiful and dramatic varieties of plants available.
There will be plenty of opportunity to meet the experts, ask questions and buy your own specimens to nurture at home.
Admission is included in the price of a Park and Garden ticket.
