Hinckley and District Photographic Society debut exhibition at Atkins Gallery

Published Friday, 17 January 2020

Atkins Gallery for the first time will be hosting the Hinckley and District Photographic Society 2020 exhibition from Monday 20 January until Friday 24 January.

This exhibition will feature a varied mix of current members' photography work.

Hinckley and District Photographic Society (HDPS) is a local club which was originally founded in 1923 and host competitions, members’ talks and group photography projects.  

Committee member Ray Dallywater explains what they would like to achieve with their 2020 exhibition “The exhibition is to showcase current members' work and to promote the Society in order to attract new members. We are a small and friendly group and can offer a warm welcome, from those who are just starting to dabble in digital photography to old hands who can the remember the days of negative’s and glass plates. We look to welcoming you.”

Executive Lead for Culture at the Borough Council, Cllr Keith Nichols said:

I am delighted to welcome the Hinckley and District Photographic Society to the Atkins Gallery. I hope their exhibition will be well attended and residents of the borough, looking potentially to start a new hobby or want to develop their photographic skills take the opportunity to meet club members.

Hinckley and District Photographic Society meet in the Pine room at the Holy Trinity Centre, Marchant Road Hinckley on Fridays between 7:30pm and 9:30pm from September through to April.

Atkins Gallery is open Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5:30pm for more information please call Tel.01455 247070.
