Programme of Events – 2021

Archive copy

Updated 6th October

As a result of COVID-19, our planned programme of face-to-face events has been suspended for the time being, and it is likely that we will be unable to have face-to-face events until Autumn 2021. 

In the meantime, we are continuing to organise online meetings. 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.
