Tonbridge Camera Club has a membership of about 80 people of all ages with a wide range of photographic skills.  We offer an informal, friendly, welcoming and supportive environment for photographers at all levels of experience.

Our Main Thursday evening programme includes:


  • Talks and Presentations from guest speakers who will talk about their pictures and photographic interests

  • Competitions for both Prints and projected digital images (i.e., ordinary images but projected onto our huge screen)

  • Members' Evenings where members can talk about some of their images and/or videos and give the story behind them

  • Practical sessions on photographic techniques and camera use. The pictures below were taken by member Colin Hurley at our recent "Macro Photography" night.



There is an Annual Exhibition which is held at the Tunbridge Wells Art Society Gallery in the Pantiles. This is an opportunity for you to show your pictures to the general public. This year's Exhibition will probably be from 10-4 on Saturday 19th, Sunday 20th, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th October. There are markets open on the Pantiles on all these days which guarantee plenty of appreciative visitors. We will repeat the event next year.

Our Subgroups take place via Zoom on a couple of Tuesdays or Wednesdays each month between 8.00 – 10.00 p.m. and include:

  • An Image Discussion Group which takes place on the third Tuesday of each month. You can have your images critiqued and join in the discussion.

  • Audio-visual (AV) presentations. AVs are combinations of pictures/videos with music/commentary/sound effects. You can also learn about the software. These take place on the first Wednesday of the month. A Kent-wide AV Group meets on Zoom on the third Wednesday of each month.


Mini-outings: these are informal visits to places of photographic interest. In the past, we've visited (for example) Battersea Power Station, a variety of London Churches and Cathedrals, London's South Bank, the London Underground (much more fun than it sounds), Strawberry Hill House, the Hawk Conservancy near Andover, Biggin Hill Air Show, Aylesford Priory and Rochester Dickens Festival. These outings provide an ideal opportunity to socialise and learn new techniques. There will always be experienced members on hand to help you. 

You can attend two Thursday meetings and two Tuesday or Wednesday subgroup meetings completely free of charge before committing to joining the Club.

How to find us

Meetings take place at Tunbridge Wells Football Club, the Ridgemont Pavilion, The Ridgeway, Off Yew Tree Road, Southborough, Kent, TN4 0JA - pictures below.  When you arrive, head upstairs (lift available) to the main room where there will always be a friendly welcome. The well-stocked bar will be open from 7.00 and you will therefore be able to have a drink and socialise before the meetings start. What better way to spend a Thursday evening?
