Next Camera Club Outing

Highgate Cemetery Tour – Sunday 12 January (friends/relatives welcome too) 10.30am (please note earlier time) Meet outside Highgate East Cemetery entrance (Swain’s Lane) for free time in East Cemetery

12.30pm Sunday lunch at the Angel (N6 5JT) – they may need pre-orders but haven’t sent anything over yet so hopefully not! 

2.30pm Guided tour of Highgate West Cemetery

Cost: £12 per person for the guided tour, which includes entry into the East Cemetery (this is usually £4). Please try to bring the £12 in cash if possible to make it easier on the day. 

Travel: Nearest station is Archway (Northern line) and the Cemetery is an 18 minute walk from there. You can also catch the bus (143/210/271) from the station to South Grove and it’s then a three minute walk along Swain’s Lane.

Tripods: Their website says that tripods are welcome but not on tours so you should be fine to use them in the East Cemetery but not the West.

Please email Charlotte if you’d like to join us or haven’t heard from Charlotte please?

Further planned outings can be found at the end of this Newsletter.

What’s on this coming weekend and soon

Take part in No Trousers on the Tube – Sunday 12 January

Whether it’s the annual Naked Bike Ride or No Trousers on the Tube, Londoners just love getting their kit off on public transport. This year, the latter kicks off at 3.30pm in Chinatown, opposite Canton on Newport Place. Participants are advised to arrive fully clothed – it will be very cold, after all – before splitting off into smaller groups on the tube and removing their trousers while on board. The capital is one of more than 60 cities taking part in the surreal event, and if you don’t mind baring all in the name of fun, it could be one for you. 

Relive a classic British album 

The Museum of London are celebrating 40 years since the release of The Clash’s classic album London Calling, showcasing more than 100 items from the band’s archive – including Joe Strummer’s notebook, Topper Headon’s drumsticks and the bass guitar Paul Simonon smashed onstage, a moment captured on the album’s cover.

Until March 20, Museum of London, 150 London Wall, Barbican, EC2Y 5HN, museumoflondon.org.uk

Forthcoming Camera Club Outings

York/WhitbySunday 5 to Tuesday 7 April 2020

Sunday 5 April: travel up to York in the morning, walking tour around the city in the afternoon and time for sunset/evening photography

Monday 6 April: private minibus trip to Whitby via the York Moors, Goathland etc. – full itinerary to be confirmed (maximum 16 people so first come, first served)

Tuesday 7 April: more time in York before travelling back to London in the afternoon/evening

When I first put this in the Newsletter the cost was £106 for two nights’ accommodation at the Travelodge Central Layerthorpe (per room) plus around £50 for the day trip (depending on final numbers).

Charlotte will organise the above but you’ll need to book your own train tickets – these go on sale 12 weeks in advance so please put 12 January in your diaries to get the best price! We’ll send out a reminder nearer the time too.

As Charlotte will have to pay in full for the Travelodge accommodation to get the saver rates, it’d be great if you could email her to let her know that you’re coming and she will contact you to give her bank details. The cost is £106 (this forms your non-refundable deposit). If you’d like to share a room, please her know who you’re sharing with and transfer £53 each. Partners/relatives/friends are welcome on this trip.
