British Cactus and Succulent Society
Cambridge & District Branch
2024 Programme

Some pictures from our shows

The British Cactus & Succulent Society (BCSS) has around 100 branches throughout the country. The Cambridge & District Branch meets on the second Wednesday of each month (except February) in the Memorial Hall, Woollards Lane, Great Shelford, Cambridge, CB22 5LZ.

Here is a map which should open in a new window. Use the controls on the map if you want more of an overview of how to get there.

The Cambridge Branch was formed in 1947, and usually attracts up to 40 people to its monthly meetings. It is one of the branches grouped together in Zone 6 of the BCSS.

The meetings start at 7pm, but the first half-hour is just an opportunity to talk to others, stage show plants, and search the sales table for bargains, so you needn't arrive until 7.30pm. As a guide, the meetings sometimes go on until 10pm, but might finish earlier.

Everyone is welcome at the meetings (including non-members). Most meetings have a visiting speaker, often illustrated with slides (or increasingly digital presentations), or sometimes with plants. Also there are:

Do come to one of our meetings. Just come along, or if you want further information then email our Secretary on secretary@cambridge.bcss.org.uk. You can find information and, if you want, join the National Society here. Note that, like other branches, the Cambridge Branch has to be self-financing, and does not receive any money from your subscription to the British Cactus & Succulent Society. Entrance to our meetings costs £2.00, and you can also contribute to our fund-raising by buying a raffle ticket.

2024 Meetings

N.B. This is still the programme card for 2023, in case you want to look at the kind of meetings we have. The 2024 programme will be uploaded when ready - first meeting Wednesday 13th March 2024.

View or download the programme card for 2023.

From this year (2023), the programme is only available online. If you want to print the PDF, then most programs have a print option called 'booklet' or 'brochure' which will arrange the pages so you can fold into a booklet and staple.
