Sileby Photographic Society

Programme

Our season runs from September to June. During the summer break we take part in walks around the area, with a view to having a good time and maybe even taking some pictures. Whether or not we take any pictures, the evening invariably ends in a local hostelry. Please do contact us if you would like details of the walks. Find below details of all meetings and events for the season. A PDF version of our complete programme, which opens in a separate window, is available here. You will need Acrobat Reader in order to view the document. Click the icon below to download Acrobat Reader.  If you decide to print it and your printer has a "booklet" setting, then this PDF version is ideal, having been typset for booklet printing.  If changes to the programme become necessary, they will be notified below but not changed in the PDF version.

Our Press Officer writes an excellent report on each meeting for publication in the Loughborough Echo.  You can find links that will allow you to view recent reports here.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

In response to the continuing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic along with the expected easing of restrictions due to the success of the UK's vaccination programme, we have decided to create a programme for 2021-22 that starts with some Zoom meetings and then moves to the Sileby Community Centre later in the autumn.  This enables us to invite speakers from a wider geographical area in the first part of the season.

Invitations to each Zoom meeting will be sent out to the members’ mailing list well in advance.  Meetings start at 8pm; please join by 7.50.
