What's On

This page has some events that may be of interest to photographers. They are mostly in Kent/London/SE England to be relevant for our own members. (We do not vouch for the shows personally as most are added to the page before they open.)

The items are in the order of those ending first, so you have more time to plan for those further down the list.

We obviously try to ensure that the details are correct, but we haven't given opening times and any entry charges, etc. We recommend that you check details before visiting - especially as we've seen that closing dates sometimes change. (Any links to external websites will open in a new browser window.)

For photography shows and galleries in London Time Out's website section on photography is really worth checking out.

The London Photography Diary site also has useful information on London photo exhibitions and events.

The Calendar section of the KCPA website shows a selection of Club events in Kent. These are not usually duplicated on this page.
