    10:00Town Square Hitchin

    Every year we run a promotional event to tell people about Hitchin Camera Club and to encourage some new members.

    We’re expecting to have our usual stall in the town square, where we’ll tell people about the club, let then see examples of our work, and give you the chance to chat to like minded people. We’re always looking for members (especially our newer members) to come down and promote the club, but we welcome anyone who simply wants to drop by and say “hello”

    19:00Broadway Fountains Letchworth

    Following on from the promotional event in the town square we encourage all of our existing members, and any potential new members come along to this event to do some photography and have a catch-up. This year we’ll be doing a photo-walk around Letchworth meeting at the fountains on the Broadway Gardens at 7:00pm.

    As always I'm sure we'll be sloping off for a beer after.

    If you've got a friend that's interested in photography and maybe wants to join a camera club why not invite them to join us!

    For our Welcome back evening we'll be putting on our usual selection of updates and introductions from the club committee.

    As normal there'll be a full run down of this year's programme, updates on the competitions and news about how we aim to keep safe going forward.

    This evening is a great introduction to the club and we'd invite anyone with an interest in photography to come along and find out about us and what we do.

    Returning members will be keen to note that we'll be announcing the subjects for the Assignment night planned for the 20th October.

    On the Opening Night our Chairman Andy Hyde announced 2 subjects for the Assignment night, and tonight we get to see the results of your efforts. As always we'll be asking our members to tell us a little about their photos which gives us a great (and rare) opportunity to really talk about photography

    As usual we'll be asking you to send in up to 6 digital images answering the 2 subjects, these need to be in by midnight on Sunday 16th.

    The two subjects this time are;

    • To be Announced
    • To be Announced

    As always we ask you to shoot something fresh and to interpret these subjects in the widest way possible.
