Welcome to Oldham Camera Club


We are a small, friendly amateur photographic club. The words fun, friends & photos fit us perfectly. We meet most Thursday nights at 7.30pm in the NEON Hub, Holt Street, Oldham,  OL4 2DQ, which runs off Huddersfield Road, between the Minders Arms and the Weavers Arms near the bottom of Ripoonden Road .

We have a varied 2018 Syllabus and will give you a warm welcome, whether you are new to photography or an old hand.  Feel free to  contact us  for more information or just come along to the club and join us.

In the meantime, why not have a look at some recent photos  taken by members or have a browse through the club’s rules and constitution.
