Public Events

The BMS organises public talks, exhibitions and activites at venues such as the RHS Flower Shows, botanic gardens, museums, visitor centres, libraries, woodlands, universities and - more recently - online.


BMS Talks

Our monthly BMS Talks are delivered online and open for anyone to attend (registration required).  Invited speakers from across the globe discuss a variety of mycological topics. Find out more and watch recordings of past talks here.


UK Fungus Day

Since 2013, the Society has placed fungi well and truly ‘on the map’ by supporting the 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.

More information about the 2021 event coming soon on the UK Fungus Day website.

In the meantime, take a  look at this Fascinating Fungi video produced by Prof Lynne Boddy of Cardiff University as part of Earthwatch Europe’s Wild Days project. (You may need to register on the site to access this video, but registration is free.) Enjoy!
