Our volunteer run White Hart Tea Room is pleased to announce the return of a photography exhibition.
Pictures from the Hinckley and District Photography Society will be on the walls of the tea room at the bottom of Long Street for the next month.
The unique venue is a volunteer run project managed by the Volunteer Centre North Warwickshire. It has wall space which it opens up to groups and local artists to showcase their work.
The Group meet in the Holy Trinity Church Centre in Hinckley on Fridays from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. They share advice and knowledge about setting up a shot, lighting techniques and how to get pictures printed.
Ray Dallywater from the group said “It’s great that we can return to the White Hart Tea Room, it’s a really nice little venue. We have a variety of pictures from nine of our members on show this time round”
The group are always looking for new members. You don’t have to have any experience taking photos.
Margaret Waterson has been going for the last two years and says “I started as a beginner with not a lot of camera knowledge. The group has given me help and we have been able to share our ideas”
There’s a diverse collection of photographs on display which includes things such as landscapes, wildlife, as well as pictures of people’s holidays and their hobbies.
The White Hart Tea Room is open Monday to Friday from 10am. Pop along, have a look at the exhibition and enjoy quality drinks and homemade cake. If you come in on Wednesdays you can try out the Lunch Club menu. It is three pound for a meal and a drink. A lot of the vegetables used in the dishes at the moment are from the centre’s volunteer allotment, also based in Atherstone.
The White Hart Tea Room is looking for more people to make use of the space for displays.
