Dereham Photographic Club


Club meetings

Meetings are held at the Methodist Church Rooms, Toftwood on the first and third Thursday’s of the month. More information is available on the club schedule. Car parking is available outside the Hall.

Meetings are from 19:30 until 21:30. It may be necessary to start earlier for outdoor photo meeting or events at other clubs - it’s often possible to arrange car sharing. Details will be available prior to the event, or by contacting the Club Chairman. Information will also be posted on the Dereham Photographic Club website.

Outdoor evenings may need to be cancelled due to unfavourable weather conditions, in which case the meeting will take place at the Methodist Church Rooms as normal. In the event that a meeting has to be cancelled, members will be informed via the club website and by email.
