Public Events

The Society have organised public exhibitions and displays at venues such as the RHS Flower Shows, Botanic Gardens, Museums, Visitor Centres, Libraries, Woodlands, and Universities, to name a few examples.

Since 2013 the Society has placed fungi well and truly ‘on the map’ by providing financial support for the inaugural ‘UK Fungus Day’ weekend of activities, encouraging our recording groups and other interested parties to join us in raising awareness of fungi and fungal science. Since then UK Fungus Day has grown to involve a large number of key organisations as well as the public, including the Royal Society of Biology, Universities and Research Institutes, Plantlife, the Royal Horticultural Society, National Trust, the Wildlife Trusts, Kew Gardens, NBGW, RBGE, Cambridge University Botanic Gardens and the RSPB centres.

Join us for this year’s festival planned for the weekend of 6th and 7th of October 2018. Further details for organisers and attendees can be found on our UKFD Facebook page or by contacting us at
