Our annual programme of events consists of twenty or so presentations from award-winning photographers, assessment of your work by accredited external judges at our seven internal competitions and our occasional workshops and field trips. 

We think it’s amazing value.

As a result of the Coronavirus/ Covid-19 situation we will not be holding any physical events this season. All events will take place via Zoom videoconferencing. Meetings begin at 7.20pm for 7.30pm.

We have finalised a revised programme for September to December and are working on adapting the original planned programme January up to the end of the season.

Until the programme web page is updated please refer to the outline below.

If you are not a member, you can register to attend our next meeting by completing the form below which is hosted by Eventbrite. We do ask you to make a small contribution of £5, which goes towards the costs of keeping the Society going such as fees to our speakers.
