    The August Bank Holiday weekend will see the start of the popular Hebden Bridge Camera Club Annual Exhibition and, this year, owing to Covid 19 and the impracticalities of arranging a physical exhibition at the Town Hall, it will take place on our website.

    The exhibition will start on Saturday 29 August and is a showcase for the work of all our members. There will be both digital and film images, displaying a wide variety of categories, styles and techniques. We are hoping that visitors to our website will have the opportunity to vote for their favourites, which has proved so popular in previous years. The three winning images from last year's exhibition will also be on display.

    The club usually meets at The Masonic Hall, Hangingroyd Lane, Hebden Bridge, every Wednesday evening at 7.45pm, from the beginning of September to the end of April. However, during Lockdown, the club has remained active by meeting online via Zoom.

    New members are always welcome. Please contact us through our website for details of a free trial membership. Each year the club produces its own Hebden Bridge Calendar and the 2021 version will be available to purchase locally.

    For more information, please visit our website.
