Retford & District Photographic Society - Details of the clubs Exhibitions

Any community groups interested in including a display of our work in their events are invited to discuss opportunities at the exhibition or to get in touch via our Exhibition Secretaries Joy & Dik Allison on 01777 871506.

Thanks to a Big Lottery grant from ‘Awards for All’ in September we have been able to greatly improve our equipment and ability to mount displays for the public to enjoy.

'Festival of Bird Art' - September 10th and 11th - Bakewell

On September 10th and 11th we mounted a display of bird photographs as part of the Festival of Bird Art staged annually by the British Decoy and Wood Carvers Association in Bakewell, Derbyshire.



It was good to hear that our exhibition at the Festival of Bird Art had been a success. Almost 100 bird images taken by members had been on our display and were much appreciated by the organisers and visitors alike.



'Spot it - ID it' - Sunday July 17th 2016 - 10am to 4pm - Idle Valley

Our participation in the Spot it! ID it! event organised by the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust at their Idle Valley Nature Reserve was an outstanding success. We were unique among the many groups whose interest is in the natural world. Our members provided an attractive display of photographs of insects, reptiles and molluscs.

2016 Annual Exhibition - Saturday May 7th 2016 - 10am to 4pm - Retford Town Hall

The Society hosted its annual exhibition in Retford Town Hall on Saturday 7th May. We were delighted to welcome an excellent attendance of around 120 visitors during the day and to hear their appreciative comments.

There was a great deal of enthusiasm for the content of the images and much praise for the standard of the work on show. The display included work from members who do not normally enter our competitions as well as those who enjoy competing. The exhibitors represented all levels of experience within the club and a wide range of ages.
