Our annual exhibition will be opening on Saturday 24th August at the Hebden Bridge Town Hall and runs until the 31st. The exhibition will be open daily from 10am until 4pm (except on Bank Holiday Monday (26th) where unfortunately the Town Hall is closed). Entry is free.

We encourage members of the public to vote for their favourite images while looking at the exhibition, the winners of which will be announced in September. Two or more members from the club will generally be present to answer any questions you might have about the exhibition or the club itself, for the duration of the exhibition. We look forward to seeing you!

The exhibition also marks your first opportunity to see and buy our Hebden Bridge 2020 Calendar. It will be on sale at just £5 a copy, a slight discount over the regular retail price.

In addition to the calendar, a limited number of copies of the second edition of the club’s magazine ‘Narratives’ will also be available, priced at £5.

Hebden Bridge Celebrates 10th Consecutive Battle Win

Hebden Bridge Camera Club once again retained the Gavel Trophy in their annual photographic battle with Todmorden Photographic Society on March 6th. This marks the 10th consecutive year that Hebden has been victorious in the competition. Due to unforeseen circumstances Todmorden were unable to host the battle this year, so the win was also on home ground for Hebden Bridge.

Both clubs produced some excellent images, but a string of 20s in the projected images helped to give Hebden a convincing lead. The overall scores were 169 points to Hebden Bridge and 148 to Todmorden.
