Welcome to the Cheltenham Camera Club. As the largest photographic club in Gloucestershire, we have a wealth of experience to support you, whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced worker.

We are now back meeting again at Holy Apostles Church Hall, GL52 6HW on Thursday evenings, operating with distanced seating a ventilated hall and face masks. Meetings are being recorded for online viewing by members unable to attend. A few meetings will also be held by Zoom. We are aiming to restart our separate focus groups and training sessions for members. We organise club outings, regular competitions and an annual exhibition. For the last few years, the club has managed the Gloucestershire Young Photographers competition and Cheltenham International Salon of Photography.

If you are interested in photography then join us now.
