Programme 2019 - 2020

Our 2019-2020 season starts in September 2019. 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 three 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.

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.
