A Little History

The origins of our club go back a long way.
Our origins come from the Beacon Guild.  Formed at Wilmslow in 1926;  the Beacon Guild’s purpose was to adult education and the development of Arts, Music and Drama for the people of Wilmslow. It soon became known just as The Guild.  Membership numbers and activities grew and in 1938 the Photographic Society was formed.
The year 1939 saw a reduction in Guild activities due to the hostilities, but post-war the activities and societies, including the Photographic Society, reformed and continued to grow and develop.
In 2021, Wilmslow Guild changed its name to The Guild for Lifelong Learning; however the photographic society continued as the Wilmslow Guild Photographic Society.
At the end of the 2022/2023 season, the members of the club decided to operate as an independent  group and formed the Wilmslow Photography Club.
Here are some historic images.
