Club 2022/2023 Programme

We have a fantastic line up of speakers this year.  Tracy, our new program secretary has been hard at work ensuring that we have a wide range of photographic genres covered, from food to wildlife, smartphones to printing, there is something to wet everyones appetite.

We would like to encourage members back to the hall on Wednesday evening.  The social integration between our members is very important, and this is something that is difficult to maintain over zoom meetings.  For people who are unable to attend the hall, we will be offering some evenings on zoom, and this will be made clear in the programme listing below. For these events, those who opt to come to the hall will watch the Zoom presentations on our big screen, while guests and those who choose to stay at home can watch on their computers.


The weekly admission fee will apply to everyone who attends a Wednesday meeting (Monday Mentoring Sessions are free), whether in the hall or at home. For meetings held on hall nights we will accept payment in cash at the door, although our preferred method of payment will be for weekly fees to be paid by bank transfer in blocks of a month (best done by setting up a monthly payment). The Treasurer will be able to tally your attendance (hall or via zoom) against your payments and will ensure that no one is out of pocket by the end of the season. All zoom meetings will have a link to Eventbrite.  This will enable members and guests to book and pay for zoom meetings online.


Visitors are very welcome to join us for some of our Zoom meetings - you will find an Eventbrite link on these meetings. The meeting cost is £4.50 on the door, £5.00 on Zoom. If you wish to join any other meeting night - this can be up to three times this season - please contact our Membership Secretary. Email:
