Lancaster Photographic Society Exhibition 2011

Opening Night

Wednesday 20th April – 7:30pm

Nowadays almost everyone has a camera, even if it is just in a mobile phone. But not everyone is aware that Lancaster has its own local Photographic Society, with a history reaching back to its formation in 1889. In those early years its members included H.L. Storey. More recently, the Society met for a number of years in the Storey Institute (now renamed The Storey CIC).

Today the Lancaster Photographic Society is a small but growing group of amateur photographers who share their enthusiasm for the subject in weekly meetings comprising how-to-do-it talks, practical demonstrations and competitions. This end-of-season exhibition comprises more than 60 high quality colour and monochrome images, including landscapes, floral subjects, close-up work, portraits, architecture and natural history shots.

Society members are of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, and new members are always welcome. This showcase of the Society’s work gives a chance to anyone interested in photography to see what can be achieved with a camera, and to find out more about our activities.

Set within The Storey’s NICE Cafe Bar (, why not pop in for a coffee and take a look at this extraordinary exhibition!


If you can’t make it to the opening night the exhibition itself runs until the 12th of May so feel free to pop along anytime.
