It all began on 4 May 1939 and we have now been meeting for over 75 years.

Throughout the years we have retained a friendly vibrant tradition and our membership is a mixture of ages and abilities. The Club aims to provide all those interested in photography with an opportunity to improve their knowledge, skill and enjoyment of the art.

Where to Find Us

We hold weekly Thursday meetings from 7.30pm at the Cotswold Bowls Club from September to May and have a varied programme of competitions with guest judges, talks and lectures, field trips and practical evenings.

Our current programme can be found here.

In the middle of the year between May and September our Summer Club swings into action.
This is an informal get together that takes place every Thursday evening throughout the summer. Each week we explore and photograph our wonderful county and end the evening somewhere sociable.

We are always keen to include new members.
If you would like to join us or just wish to come along to see things for yourself, please send an email through our CONTACT link.
We look forward to meeting you!

Our location address is Cotswold Bowls Club, Golden Jubilee Way, Dudbridge, Stroud. GL5 3HQ.
