MEMBERS' PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES FEATURED

THE 2017 Nantwich Camera Club Photographic Exhibition, featuring recent work by members of the popular and successful club, is on display in the Millennium Gallery and is running until Saturday, November 11.

   The annual event includes print and projected images with a wide range of inspiring subjects. A number of the prints will be available for sale and visitors will be invited to choose their favourite photograph.

   The Camera Club was formed in 1981 to promote the hobby of photography and provide an opportunity for members to develop their skills in a social environment.

   It is affiliated to The Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union and The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain and its work regularly features in area and national competitions.

   A wide range of club activities includes lectures, demonstrations, practical events and competitions.

   The first club exhibition was held in Nantwich Library in 1983 and the first exhibition at the Museum in 2002 celebrating the club's 21st Anniversary.

   Entry to the museum and exhibition is free.

HISTORY BOOKLETS

THERE are more history booklets in the museum shop, bringing the total on sale to 30, with more being added all the time.

   The new ones are: "Landscape with Mills in the Nantwich Hundred" by Andrew Lamberton and Graham Dodd"; "The River Weaver in Nantwich: An introduction to its History and Science" by Helen Cooke and Scott Walker; and "The Parochial Library of St Mary's Church" by Helen Cooke.

   All booklets are £2.95.  They are selling well and so some may not be available when you call in, but more copies are being printed all the time.

   Full details are available on the museum website - the booklets produced so far, the ones on the way, and those which are proposed for future publication.

AND SOMETHING THAT IS 'OFF'

The Cheese Room is closed for the rest of September while it undergoes a revamp - a fresh coat of paint and other work. There will be new information panels on display when it reopens.

 

VIEWS FROM 20 YEARS IN ASIA

“ASIAN Serendipity”, an exhibition by Aneta Talbot in the Your Space Gallery at Nantwich Museum, features a myriad of selected images taken during recent travel across Asia focused on Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, India and Sri Lanka.

   The exhibition runs until Saturday, October 21.

   Photographer Aneta Talbot, who now lives in Nantwich, spent nearly 20 years living in Singapore. During that time she travelled extensively across Asia exploring her passion for photographing the daily lives and rich variety of cultures of the region. This exhibition presents some of the best of her photographs.

   Aside from gaining numerous photographic qualifications, Aneta graduated from the Palin School of Arts and Design in Singapore with a Diploma plus distinction in Graphics and Design, all of which culminated in the setting up of a successful events photography business. She was also involved in charity work in Cambodia with Tabitha, a non-profit organisation working to alleviate poverty in Cambodia.

   Aneta’s photographs are all for sale, and a variety of prints are also available to browse in the museum shop. More on Aneta’s pictures can be seen on her website www.nessietalbotphotography.org or her Facebook page: Nessie Talbot Photography.

TOUR THE TOWN

GUIDED tours of Nantwich are led by volunteers from the museum, either as a general tour for members of the public, or an exclusive one tailored to meet the requirements of a group.

   They last for between an hour an half and two hours and can feature Tudor  Nantwich, Victorian Nantwich, the Battle of Nantwich, and the Civil War. Or they can have a specific theme such as industry in the local area to suit a group.

   The tours cost £2 per person for a minimum of six people. Larger groups or parties of individuals may be split into smaller parties so that participants can hear the leader of the tour and see any relevant object easily.

   To join an arranged tour, or to set up one for your group, telephone 01270 627104, e-mail education@nantwichmuseum.org.uk, or call in at the museum. For more information visit the museum website or call in at the museum.
