Hinckley and District Photographic Society are a club which was founded locally 88 years ago in 1932. The club host competitions, group meetings and group photography projects.

Committee member of the Society, Ray Dallywater, explained why he wanted the group’s work to be featured in the exhibition. He said: “The exhibition is to showcase current members work and to promote the Society in order to attract new members.

We are a small and friendly group and offer a warm welcome, from those who are just starting to dabble in digital photography to old hands who can the remember the days of negatives and glass plates. We look forward to welcoming you.”

The Executive Lead for Culture at Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, Councillor Keith Nichols said: “I am delighted to welcome the Hinckley and District Photographic Society to the Atkins Gallery.

“I hope their exhibition will be well attended and residents of the borough, looking potentially to start a new hobby or wanting to develop their photographic skills, take the opportunity to meet club members.”

The Hinckley and District Photographic Society meet up on most Friday nights from the months of September to April. Their programme is a combination of competitions, demonstrations and lectures. These are given by both members and external speakers.
