Frome Festival Event Number 805, 10 am Sunday 8th at the Cheese & Grain.
David will be leading our annual walk, this time on a slightly different route which will include, he promises, some fine graffiti. There will be a vintage model. This is always an enjoyable event, and a good recruiting tool for FWCC. It is free for members, so why not come and join the party? We hope to end (around noon) in the Black Swan Café, where you can also enjoy our outstanding display of photographs of previous Festivals.
Diary date: 7.30pm on Monday 30th July, at The Three Swans, Frome.
After successful annual holidays in West Wales, Northumberland, North Wales, the Lake District and most recently Tuscany, it is now time to think about the Club Holiday 2019.
Although June next year may seem far away, experience tells us we do need to find and book suitable accommodation well ahead.
The meeting at the end of this month is to gauge interest and to try to decide on a venue. Holidays are open to members and their partners, friends and even dogs. We try hard to find locations where non-photographers will also find plenty to enjoy. We find that economy of scale (15+ participants) helps very much to keep costs down. We usually go in June, after the Club's season has finished but before the school holidays.
So if you even think you might like to come on the holiday next year, please come along to the meeting. We meet upstairs at The Three Swans, a delightfully quirky and very old pub in King Street (BA11 1BH), just opposite the top of Cheap Street. But please be sure to buy yourself a drink before you come upstairs - that is our rent for the room!
A teaser for later
Alan Denison, whose stunning pictures of dancers you will not have forgotten, is arranging a dance photo workshop in Frome early in September. Watch out for details in later newsletters.
Hope to see you on Sunday. Otherwise, keep watering and Praying for the Rain, and enjoy the Festival; attending events, you may well see press photographers you recognise...
