During each summer recess members of the club voluntarily organise group events, many of which are also open to non-members. These are not part of the club's official programme.

2019 -2020 Programme Published

Please take a look at the Bedford Camera Club Programme for October 2019 to May 2020. Once again our programme secretary, Bruce, has put together a calendar of events, competitions and talks from visiting professionals and highly talented photographers. I think you will agree this is one of the best club photography programmes and the club fee represents an amazing value for money. Take a look and if you are not yet a member we would love to see you become one. Take your photography to a new level.
