Join Us

The Bolton Camera Club meets weekly throughout most of the year and gives a very warm welcome to visitors and new members. We have been sharing a passion for photography since 1884 and are more than happy to share with you, whether your interest is in film or digital, audio visual or more technical aspects of photography. 

Why not consider joining the Bolton Camera Club? 

Try us out first, we are always pleased to see new faces at the Camera Club. 

We meet on Thursday evenings at 7.15pm for 7.30pm start at St Osmund’s Church Hall, Long Lane, Bolton, BL2 6EB.  

Of course, we love to see people sign up for membership so that they can enjoy the full range of our activities, including being able enter images for our monthly competitions. However, we don't usually expect people to join straight away, but rather we like them to try us out to see if our Club suits their needs.

After a couple of meetings, we hope that you would like to apply for membership and you will then be asked to complete a membership application form and return it to the Membership Secretary. The membership fee is currently (2022) £24 per annum (or £36 for a couple), and junior membership* is £5.00 per year. The annual membership is due on joining, and renewed each January

We also ask that members contribute £3 (£1.50 for juniors) per week towards the cost of refreshments and room hire. This fee is £30, payable quarterly, by the following dates: 31 January, 31 March, 30 June, 30 September.

All fees are paid by Bank transfer, details of which will be given to you on joining.

For your convenience, an application form is attached to this web page, so when you are ready, why not fill it in and bring it along to a Club meeting?

*We welcome junior members, but anyone under 18 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult

We look forward to meeting you and discovering your own angle on photography.
