08/01/2020 2019 Rushden Open (CD)
The Rushden show has been a fixture at our club since its inception and now attracts a very wide entry, making it difficult to gain an acceptance. Nevertheless, you might spot the odd image from little old Lutterworth PS.
The East Midlands Audio Visual Group & Leic. Movie Makers will present their annual show with a selection of their best work from last year. (Dunchurch P.S. will be our guests this evening.)

Hand-in for next week’s Conservation Trophy (4 – PDIs)
12/02/2020 Conservation Trophy & PDI of the Year Competitions
Our judge tonight has the unenviable task of selecting two trophy winners. The first will become the club’s “natural history” guru for the next twelve months while the second will take pride in having produced the best PDI of the year.
19/02/2020 An Evening with Stuart Leche
Stuart lives in Lutterworth and used to be a member of the club, so we all know how good a photographer he is. Tonight will be special. I’m not sure what he’ll bring to entertain us, but I am sure it’ll be good.
Hand-in your titles for next week’s Cheyney and Single Print comps
26/02/2020 Cheney & Single Print Competitions
This is the premier print competition night in our calendar. There are four trophies to be won tonight and although it’s not exactly a lottery, it is true that “you’ve got to be in it to win it” so, good luck. To enter the Cheney Trophy competition you’ll need a set of 6 prints (any two of which must be monochrome). The entries must illustrate 3 topics (of your choice), two prints to each topic. In addition, there are three single print competitions, one each for Colour, Mono and a recently taken Mono Landscape.

It’s the appropriate time to make your input into the club’s future direction, plus thanking those members who’ve served the club over the last 12 months and to offer your support for the next 12.
These take place at the Methodist Church, Lutterworth, and start at 7.30 on Wednesday evenings. Use the side entrance at the bottom of the car park.
