hay camera club programme of events


Because of the Coronavirus threat not all meetings of the Club are taking place 'live'. However, members continue to discuss Club business and exchange information, images and advice using a variety of methods, including video conferencing. We have been operating a regular "lockdown" programme of online sessions using free, proprietary software for a long time, part of which is detailed below. However, we remain hopeful that normal meetings will resume soon. If you are considering joining the Club and would like to take part in one of these online sessions, please contact us. Normal Welsh Covid-19 rules will apply to any in-person meetings. Please be considerate to other members.

Annual General Meeting

The AGM will be followed by a presentation by member Hazel Price on how she prepared the winning Picture of the Year in 2021

Our Club meetings are normally held every Tuesday evening between 7:30pm and 9:30pm in the Masonic Hall, Brecon Road (B4350), Hay on Wye, HR3 5DY (see directions below). We normally take a break from meetings in July and August, but may take the opportunity to arrange practical sessions and outings instead if the weather permits. 

New members are always very welcome to come along and observe a meeting before joining. The programme below will give you a feel for the scope of our meetings and the variety of speakers and competitions we organise during the year. If you have other questions please contact us.

DIRECTIONS: Leaving the centre of Hay heading West on the B4350 and passing the Swan Hotel (on the right-hand side), the road curves to the right. The Masonic Hall is some 200 yards further on, set back on the right. There is a free car park almost opposite, adjacent to the tennis courts and Bowls Club.
