Blyth Photographic Society hosted an exhibition of images at St Mary's Church on Wanley Street on Saturday 23rd October 2021. The exhibition was well received by those that visited on the day with some great feedback and memories of Blyth throughout recent decades discussed and remembered.
Programme Changes for Nov & Dec 2021
Some changes have been made to the programme as a result of Veronica Congleton not being able to judge the Open 1st round competition as a result of a serious injury.
The 1st round entry will now be judged by Glen Lawson on 18th November 21 instead of Glen judging the 2nd Round as planned. Entries for the 2nd round will now be collected on 11th November and judged by Veronica Congleton on 9th December 2021. See the 2021-22 programme page.
