Out and about

Back to Home Page


Bolton Digital Photographic Society offers a number of “official” Days Out which are organised by the club or one of its members for the benefit of all. However, there are plenty of other opportunities for members to go out with their camera either alone or as a group.

This page shows some of the events that members have suggested which others might wish to  consider.  – Go along in a group and save on transport costs!

Please submit your ideas to keep everyone’s diary full.
