What’s on Soon
Thursday 10 December
Presentations by members plus “My Two Favourite Photos of 2020”. As Brian has only received 23 images it will be a short meeting, so could those who haven’t sent anything to Brian please do so. Thanks.
Sunday 13th December – London Walk
Meet at London Bridge station at 10am. The chance to focus on London architecture but also look for images for the About Face competition. If it’s quiet in the city, at least you’ll have other members to use as models! Route to be confirmed but hopefully including Brick Lane, Shoreditch, Barbican – any requests, let Charlotte know!
To meet the Tier 2 rules, we can only have 6 members together at a time but can easily split into more than one group if needed.
Christmas at Kew – you choose the date!
An amazing after-dark light trail. Book your tickets here: https://www.kew.org/kew-gardens/whats-on/christmas The Brentford Gate entrance allows pre-booked parking.
All weekend dates were sold out so, for one time only, you can visit on any day that works for you and the images that you take can still be used towards the Kerri and Steinberger competitions (outings cups). The images can’t be from a previous year though.
