Usually 300 plus prints are displayed plus a themed slide show lasting approximately 25 minutes and projection of digital images.
In 2009 the theme slide show was "Sileby - Then and Now" and it was offered for sale to visitors to the Exhibition and local residents. This proved to be an excellent venture and a second edition is now planned.
Outings and Social events
Walks in the local countryside during July and August.
Founded in 1954
The Society met at the Sileby Village Institute until June 2009.
Due to the deteriorating state of the building it was decided to move to the village Community Centre in September 2009. The move proved to be successful with modern facilities and ample storage space for equipment.
Since 1980 themed slide/digital image shows have been produced for the Annual Exhibition with contributions from the members. The shows have been kept together and subsequently taken to many photographic societies and other organisations in the Midlands.
Several of the members enter competitions run by other societies helping to keep the name of Sileby Photographic Society to the fore.
We are a friendly society and the programme contains a mix of competition and lectures by both visiting speakers and our own members.
