CHEESE & GRAIN

Smartphone Photo Walk Around Frome

David Chedgy is a local photographer who knows the town inside and out. He will be leading the walk, which will start outside the Cheese & Grain and finish some two hours later with time for a chat and refreshments. Whilst this is the ‘smartphone edition’ of the walk, and will therefore primarily focus on capturing images from the perspective of a phone user, anyone with any camera is still very welcome to attend (though note there is a DSLR/mirrorless-specific photo walk, too).

Charge up and free up space on your phone, come along, take some pictures, and make new friends. Why not bring family or pals with you, too? Everyone is welcome to attend, though under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

£8 per person. 20 spaces available.
