Welcome to Prestwich Camera Club

We meet on Tuesday evenings from around 7pm for a 7.45pm start.

We have a varied programme of competitions, lectures, practical nights & inter-club battles, with a few other activities thrown in. We cater for all skill sets and photographic interests from complete beginners up to professional level.

Although we are not a teaching club, if you are new to photography our members are only too happy to help you get to grips with the hobby. If you have a particular interest in a subject, be it landscape, people, still life etc, then we can match you up with one of our similarly minded experienced members.

Feel free to come along to a few of our meetings to get a flavour of the club. You do not have to join right away, but will be expected to pay the door fee (currently £3) after your first visit which should give you time to decide if it's right for you.


The club was formed in the early nineteen fifties, and at one time was the Prestwich and Eccles camera club, later becoming the Prestwich Co-op camera club when the Co-op supported the club through monetary grants. At this time the club met in Prestwich in a house owned by the Co-op, but later moved its meetings to the Longfield Suite in the town centre. When the Co-op removed financial support from all it's groups the word Co-op was dropped from our name.

After a spell based in Radcliffe, we now meet in Whitefield at the Oasis Centre at the Methodist church.
