Imaginary Consequences, November 19–22, 2015, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset
Set in 1932 at the party celebrating the wrap of location filming for a
Hollywood movie. Burning Orchid is an immense blockbuster, detailing

villages of Guatemala against a background of a country riven by political
turmoil. And that’s not just the movie! Glamorous cast, intense emotions, a
steamy situation, secrets past and present – who knows what might happen, but
fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night.
