Tues 1st

Devizes Camera Club presents:

Robert Harvey BA ARPS EFIAP CSci CEnv MCIWEM

‘Britain’s Best Landscapes and How to Photograph Them’

Tuesday 1st March at 7.30pm

Sports Club, London Rd, Devizes, SN10 2DL

Drawing on his recently published book of the same title, Robert starts by asking how much of landscape photography is the result of planning and what is down to luck? He will show how photographic vision can be realised by innovative composition, effective use of colour, the most suitable light, season and weather, and by capturing a moment or telling a story. In the second half Robert suggests how to develop a personal style, using his experience as an environmental scientist to show how understanding water, Sun, Moon and tides characterises his photography.

Everyone welcome…

Club meetings are held at Devizes Sports Club, London Rd, Devizes SN10 2DL.

Doors open at 7.15pm, meetings start at 7.45pm

Refreshments will be served in the interval.

Members pay £2.50 per meeting.

Non members pay £2.50 per meeting, up to a maximum of 3 meetings, after which they are asked to join the club.

They had been Hollywood Stars but are in danger of becoming has-beens. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford now have an opportunity to appear together in a new film, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? But how will the arch-rivals get on? Let the battle commence!

This production, by the award-winning theatre company White Cobra, stars Victoria Miles as Bette and Kate Billingham as Joan.

White Cobra were last seen at the Wharf in 2019 with their production of Martin McDonagh’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane.

The Revlon Girl @ Wharf Theatre, Devizes

From: March 28, 2022, till April 2, 2022,

Set eight months after the Aberfan disaster, The Revlon Girl tells the real-life story of a group of bereaved mothers who met every week to talk, cry and even laugh without feeling guilt.
At one of their meetings, they secretly arrange for a representative from Revlon to come and give them a talk on beauty tips.
This is a play packed with character and heartache, entwining the restraints, gossip and sometime irrationality of a small-town community, with the poignancy of a mother’s loss. There are many humorous, uplifting and hopeful moments, allowing this piece to bring much emotion and entertainment to its audience.
