From 16th March 2020 we have been advised that our venue, Scott Primary School, has discontinued all lettings until further notice in response to the Coronavirus issues.  This means that all of our scheduled meetings between now and at least through September of this year have been cancelled

 

Our speakers and judges who were booked for dates during that time will be or have been notified, and when we have more updated information, will likely be re-booked next season

 

Similarly our exhibition will be postponed until (probably) March or April of 2021

 

More details have been emailed to members

 

To reiterate, there will be no club meetings nor an exhibition until it is safe to resume them, hopefully not later than October 2020

 

We are very sorry about this situation which is outside of our control and we thank you for your understanding

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.
