What's On

This page has some events that may be of interest to photographers. They are mostly in Kent/London/SE England to be relevant for our own members. (We do not vouch for the shows personally as most are added to the page before they open.)

The items are in the order of those ending first, so you have more time to plan for those further down the list.

We obviously try to ensure that the details are correct, but we haven't given opening times and any entry charges, etc.
