We are the Bedford Camera club, a medium sized group of individuals who meet at the Scott Lower School (map / address) on Tuesday evenings through the winter months, when lectures, competitions and members evenings are the usual format and through the summer season, when going out and about is the order of the day, all with the intention of enjoying and improving our photography.

We always welcome new members whether novice or experienced and hope that we can encourage them to broaden the art and get better results from their camera.

The club year begins in October of each year and finishes 7 months later around the end of April.

Also we normally run an optional, voluntary programme of self-funded events through the summer May to September.

The standard annual membership is £60, £30 for a student, and £100 for couples 

Those joining between January 1st and March 31st pay half the annual rate.

Those joining between April 1st and December 31st the annual membership fee lasts until the September 30th of the following year

On occasions the club will hold a competition during the summer break, this is only open to those that hold a current membership subscription.


Joining anytime between April and December 2021 will cost a full year’s membership fee of £60 (£30 student or £100 couple) and will take you through to September 30th 2022
Joining January 1st to May 31st 2022 will cost £30 (£15 student or £50 couple) and take you through to September 30th 2022

Members can usually attend all evening talks, competitions and workshops free of charge. Guests and visitors attending our ‘winter’ evening events will be asked for a contribution of £3+ (sometimes a little more for special lectures, please watch the website for details.) This fee is deductible from their membership subscription should they proceed to join. 

We are a friendly group and the cost represents very good value.  So how about it, why not come along one evening?
