Membership of the Society is open to all, and we would particularly welcome young people with an interest in photography. If you would like to come along and see if it is for you please contact the General Secretary, Derek Dixon (click on Contact on menu at the top of page).
Because of the Covid 19 pandemic the 2019-20 season came to an abrupt end in early March 2020. Until the society can reconvene and be compliant with contemporary Government Measures to contain the pandemic we have not attempted to put together our usual programme. Instead we have met virtually using Zoom. A reduced subscription applies until we can again meet normally. The current plan is to resume normal meetings in the Autumn of 2021 and a programme will be published on the programme page of this website when available and updated.
Family (2 adults at same address). £70
Under 25yrs. £10

Accompanying Carers Free
Meetings are generally held on Thursday evenings and commence at 7.30pm, finishing about 9.30pm. The venue will usually be open from 7pm of shortly afterwards. The club usually meets between September and May or early June, and meetings vary between weekly and fortnightly and there will be a minimum of 18 meetings in a season – full details can be found on the programme page of the website. The club holds at least 5 internal competitions in a season and the judging of each will take a whole evening. We usually view a folio from the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union (L&CPU) 3 times each season and remaining meetings comprise guest lectures, members nights; (when individual members present their work, a topic which interests them or host a technical evening) and occasional practical sessions (including photo-shoots)
The club meets at the Flannery Centre which is a hall attached to St Mary’s RC Church in Victoria Road, Ulverston. This is just off the A590 (County Road) in the middle of Ulverston. It is easy to find and has some on site parking. If the car park is full there is free street parking in Victoria Road and nearby Brogden Street and Kings Road. It is opposite one of the town’s main bus stops by the Rose Garden in Victoria Road.
