Day of the Dead Event – Saturday 28 October

Frances Forrest who is the Bromley BID Manager (Business Improvement District) is wondering whether anyone from the Camera Club might be interested in taking some shots at Bromley’s Day of the Dead event this Saturday in Market Square from about 1:30pm to about 9:00pm.  

Close ups of excited faces from the crowds, with signed consent forms (which we’d provide) so we can use the photographs in our publicity, and of the mariachi band, pumpkin carving/painting, orchestra, fire eaters and finally our team of four branded Night Ambassadors at 21.00 hours.  

They could pay reasonable expenses and would give credit for any images they use.

If anyone is able to help could they contact her directly Frances@yourbromley.com 07703 495725   https://yourbromley.com/
