Pop in for a visit

Pop in for a visit to find out more about the club.

If  you would like to find out more about what the club is like.
Then please do pop along to one of our club nights, it’s the best way to get an idea of what we get up to, so much better than an e-mail.

If you decide to come on a Snap Chat evening, then it’s relaxing informal night in the pub, a great place for any ice breaking, to learn about what we’ve done & do and and an opportunity to have a good ‘ol chat.

If you decide to come on a club night at The Hub, we have a various things going on, from guest speakers giving informative talks, to photography workshops & projects that will help inspire your photography skills no matter what level you are.

Please keep an eye on the website calendar for events that are coming up and to when the club next meets.

Meeting schedule:
1st Wednesday of each month – meet at The Vine from 7.30pm to catch up and chat – a chance to meet friends and talk about anything – informal & no charge!

2nd Wednesday of each month – we usually have a speaker or external ‘trainer/guest for this session. Their presentations are often linked to our own projects or skill development.

 4th Wednesday of each month – what we refer to as a social session. There may be short, skills workshops as well as ample opportunity for members to show and discuss examples of their work later in the evening.

Each of these last two sessions has a tea/coffee break built in for the necessary social side of any club! If you join us you will be expected to join another member on tea/ coffee duty at least once during the year.

Meeting venue:
Unless we’re on ‘walkabout’ or supporting outside events, all meetings are held at:
The Social Hub, Church Road, Tenterden. TN30 6AT.

Full membership: £40 per year (1st September to 31st July)

There is also a charge of £2 for each meeting you attend in addition to this annual membership fee. All these fees cover the costs of room hire, refreshments, outings and speakers.
Members have access to the closed ‘Tenterden Camera Club’ Facebook page in order to share and post photos or events.

Additional information:
For each of the past two years we have produced a calendar based on photographs of Tenterden taken by members throughout the year. Profits from the sale have been divided between the club and The Social Hub. We also aim to hold an annual exhibition of examples of our ‘work’. This is usually held in St. Mildred’s Church at the end of November to tie in with the Christmas shopping weekend. All members are encouraged to display photos and help is at hand to learn how to mount photographs for display.
