Please come along to any of our Thursday nights to see how ADAPS can help you take better photographs and make new friends.

We hold a variety of photography-related events on Thursday nights all year round, including practical photography sessions, workshops, guest speakers and competitions.

Members also often take part in other events such as studio photography sessions, digital imaging workshops, photography trips, etc on other days.

Our Thursday events begin at 8.00pm. If you are visiting for the first time please aim to arrive for between 7.15pm – 7.45pm to have a chat before the main event begins at 8.00pm.
