Programme Updates

DHL Visit

Unfortunately I have received an email from DHL cancelling the scheduled visit on the 9th September 2016.

Steam Punk

There has been little interest shown in this trip, therefore anyone wishing to go should make their own arrangements.

Thursday Nights

It seems only like yesterday since we completed our Thursday evening programme, and its now close to opening up again for the next season.

The second scheduled event is a presentation entitled MPS Visits, Trips and Workshops. Chris Brown will be leading the presentation. We’re are asking for members to submit images to support the evening.  Could you therefore send me [Ian Pettit] a maximum of 20 images[In total] from any of the following events you have attended.

  • Lea Gardens
  • Nottingham
  • Clay Mills
  • Peak District [Curbar Edge & Froggat]
  • Bristol / Bath / Westonbirt Arboretum
  • Portrait evening with Steve Bond
  • Gdansk
  • Bristol Balloon Fiesta
  • Lincoln Poppy Wave.
  • Marlow Boat Trip
  • Newstead Abbey

You can only submit images from the above list and they should be prepared with the same parameters as you do for competitions. 

I need your images by the 29th August 2016.  Any images arriving after this date are unlikely to be excluded. Sorry to be strict on this but I have a very narrow window of opportunity to put together the slide show.

Look forward to receiving your images ideally via email

The programme has now been been fully updated on the website along with a downloadable PDF format for your use. P

Calke Abbey exhibition – Assistance Required

We are coming up to the third exhibition of the year – Calke Abbey exhibition –  on Saturday 6th August to 21st August .

This gives us our chance to promote the club and show off our work, to improve local awareness and to help gain new members.

We need you to submit your images to display.  We need considerably more images than at the previous  two exhibitions as there is a lot more space.  If you have never exhibited before this is a lovely setting to showcase your work.  We are arranging a collection of your prints at Harpers on Thursday 4th August at 21:00hrs.  If you cannot make it to Harper’s you can please let me know by email (as I need to know roughly how many prints we have), and bring them on the morning of the exhibition to Calke Abbey.

This exhibition will remain in place for a two week period.  It will not  need members of the club to man it during this time.  However we will need a lot of help in setting it up To make sure this runs smoothly we need club members to volunteer their time (1 – 2 hours).

Alan has arranged for us to set up on Friday morning.  So if you could spare an hour or two on Friday from 10.00 at Calke that would be fantastic.

Please contact me at the following e-mail address (j.zahorodnyj@sky.com or Paul (paulatockbrook@gmail.com) with your offers of help so that I can plan the day.

We have 1 more exhibition coming up this summer, Melbourne Arts festival running on 17th and 18th September. I will be sending out another e-mail closer to the day with requests for help for this.
