A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Local Society: Colchester

'The programme of events includes speakers, competitions and workshops covering a wide range of photographic topics, equipment and techniques.'

'A place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to have a conversation about the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings have taken place in cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres, libraries and even out of doors, but always outside a traditional academic context ... Audiences are people who are interested in science. Anyone can participate; speakers are there to be questioned and talk about their work at all levels.'

'The Group organizes a series of archaeological digs throughout the year to help members develop and practice their skills in excavation. There is also an annual series of lectures during the winter months, study visits and other fieldwork designed to promote knowledge and interest in archaeology.'

'We take a different approach to the traditional camera clubs. Our aims are to provide a forum where members can enjoy the benefits of a club environment whilst promoting the art of photography, no matter what your interest or level of expertise ... The programme is varied and includes visiting speakers, in-house evenings and we regularly view our work for discussion after being given a theme.'

'Colchester Photographic Society was formed prior to the Second World War to promote and encourage interest in the study and application of photography. This is achieved by a varied programme of weekly meetings during the club’s season, which is September through to May. It includes visits from a variety of skilled and interesting speakers, practical evenings, competitions, plus discussions and encouragement between members.'

'The EBKA currently has more than 800 members, some with many decades of practical beekeeping experience, while others are newcomers to the craft, bringing enthusiasm and dedication to their new-found hobby ... Membership of the Essex Beekeepers’ Association is through local groups, known as Divisions ... Each Division within Essex holds a number of talks and meetings throughout the year, covering many aspects of the craft of beekeeping.'

'The area covered by the ESFH is that of the old Essex county with the exception of "London Boroughs" which are considered to be in the area of East of London FHS and Waltham Forest which is in the area of Waltham Forest FHS. Our main meetings are held monthly in Galleywood. We have monthly branch meetings in Colchester, Harlow and Southend-on-Sea. Our branch in Saffron Walden meets every 3 months. Meetings are open to both members and non-members but priority is always given to our members.'
