As the club is no longer running formal events, this programme is not updated now.
Updated 3rd November 2022
Most dates for 2022 are tentative - please check close to the event for updates.
As a result of COVID-19, our programme of face-to-face events is limited, and many events are by Zoom.
Keep watching for remote events by email or on this page, and perhaps when the restrictions are eased it may be possible to arrange out-door photoshoots or regular meetings, provided this can be done within health guidance. See updates on the News page.
The programme is subject to change - check before each event! Generally more details are added nearer to the event.
Details of Zoom meetings will be advised by email. Regular face-to-face club meetings (when this is possible) are usually held on the 3rd Thursday of every month at Brandeston Village Hall (IP13 7AD), but note that some meetings are on other days. Please arrive by 7:15 for a prompt start at 7:30.
New members always welcome - just come along and say hello. Click on the above Village Hall link for directions for face-to-face meetings, or see the contact page and email to join Zoom meetings.
Remote meetings are generally by Zoom unless otherwise stated. If you would like to join and are not already on our mailing list please contact the Club Chairman - see the Contact page.

The Tripod was a very good event and our Judge gave some interesting critiques of images. Whilst we may not have won the competition, we made sure that East Ipswich and Halesworth didn't come last !! Results can be seen in the members area, but in summary: East Ipswich 274 pts, Halesworth 268 pts and Framlingham 264 pts
Thursday 21st April - Scavenger Hunt in Woodbridge - meet 6.30pm (Sandra to arrange and email people)
At the AGM, we discussed a Summer Programme erring towards taking photographs as a group and not being restricted necessarily to Thursday Club nights.
