Programme 2017 - 2018

Our 2017-2018 season starts in September 2017. There are no formal meetings over the summer. But if you are interested do Contact Us to let us know and we can send a reminder nearer the first meeting..

If you are interested in joining the Club, you are free to attend a few meetings to try us out before paying the subscription (although you cannot enter pictures in our competitions until you are a paid-up member). Find our location on the When and Where page.

* The words ‘Entry deadline’ in the final column below shows the latest date that work is due to be handed in for a competition or other Club event. Hover the mouse cursor over ‘Deadline’ to see the event it concerns.

NB Very occasionally something crops up that prevents a guest from attending, such as illness or bad weather, and we have to put on an alternative topic. So we cannot absolutely guarantee these meetings will be as indicated - although changes tend to be VERY few and far between. Our visitors make tremendous efforts to get to us - perhaps because the vast majority are volunteers and have a passion for their photography and for sharing it.
