Deck the halls! @ 5 pm

This year, as we approach Christmas, please join fellow members and partners on Monday 11 December for a day of festive photography with not one but two social get-togethers.

We hope that you will join us for this special evening outing (like a Cuppa and Capture but later in the day and without the cuppa). This year’s festive theme is ‘Deck the halls’, and you can take your photos either before or after meeting up for a drink and a chat.

It is a great opportunity for socialising, so do come and enjoy the company of fellow members from 5 pm for a warming glass of mulled wine or a mug of hot chocolate and perhaps a bite to eat under cover and in the warmth and festive atmosphere of the Thor’s Tipi in the Museum Gardens.  The Tipi is open all day, so you can arrive from 5 pm or whenever you can get there (earlier or later).

Amongst the items on the drinks menu, there’ll be mulled wine and hot chocolate, and why not have a bite to eat from the deliciously varied hot dog menu.

Meeting in the late afternoon/early evening should mean that as many of our members as possible will be able to attend, whether you can join us after work, or perhaps need to use public transport and get home before it gets too late.

If you are free earlier, you are also welcome to meet up with our regular Cuppa and Capturers for lunch and a chat at York Theatre Royal from noon. You are more than welcome to come to either or both social get-togethers!

If you can’t make it at all that day, then do send in any images that you take on the festive ‘Deck the halls!’ theme at any time or in any place during that week.

See here for more information about Thor’s Tipi in the Museum Gardens.

Submitting images

After the event, please submit up to five of your images from this festive C&C/Outing by WeTransfer to by midnight on Friday 29 December to give us chance to publish the gallery while it’s still the holiday season. The format is exactly the same as for C&C (Submitting images).

And finally…

We are hoping that many of you (and partners) will be able to join us for one or both of this year’s special festive gatherings. It would be wonderful to catch up with everyone and to meet some of our newer members face-to-face.
