Welcome to Leicester Forest Photographic Society

Programme 2019 to 2020

Whether you're new to photography, or looking to extend your skills, you'll find plenty to interest and stimulate you at Leicestershire's premier photographic club. We pride ourselves in having a diverse membership of all abilities who benefit greatly from the wide range of activities we organise.

We have a comprehensive programme of lectures and competitions together with a well-equipped studio group. We also run workshops to help members improve their photographic techniques and group outings for members to put it all into practice. We are open to all with an interest in photography, whether you are already experienced or someone who is looking to develop their skills in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Come along to any of our meetings for a friendly welcome and see our modern venue. To learn more click on the About or Programme menus above to see a list of this season's events.

The rooms are currently booked for the Thursday, but they conflict with proposed meetings of Braunstone Town Council in the Council Chamber, which we use.
