View of the Hailsham Colours Photographic exhibition 

The Hailsham Photographic Society is presenting its Annual Digital Audio-Visual Colour Show at the Hailsham Civic Community Hall in Vicarage Lane on Friday 6 March at 7.30pm, and Saturday 7 March at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

The Mayor of Hailsham, Councillor Jo Bentley, will be attending the Friday evening performance and will present trophies to the winners.

The show is the Hailsham Photographic Society’s annual competition for the Best Audio-Visual sequence (pre-judged) and has always been well supported by the local community. The Society has welcomed the Town Mayor in previous years to this major event in the Society’s calendar, which has been held annually for over 40 years.

The Hailsham Photographic Society will be supporting IASIS Medical, a charity which provides emergency healthcare assistance to people who are marginalised either as a result of conflict, poverty or the remoteness of their homes. A donation to this charity will be provided from ticket sales and associates will be present at each of the three performances, where there will be an opportunity for fundraising and public awareness of the charity’s operations and achievements to date.

The Mayor will present the cheque to the charity on the Society’s behalf during the Friday exhibition and propose a vote of thanks at the end of the evening.

Looking forward to the event, Councillor Jo Bentley said:

“I’m very pleased to be attending the exhibition again this year and will be particularly delighted to meet the competition entrants as well as view their photograph sequences.”

Works submitted at previous exhibitions I’ve attended have amazed me with their range in photographic style, technique and subject matter, and the photographs chosen for this year’s exhibition will no doubt reveal this diversity once again. I would encourage members of the public to come along and see these remarkable images for themselves.

I’m equally as delighted to hear that the Society has chosen this year to make a donation from proceeds to the Iasis medical charity. Funds will be raised for a very good cause.”

Tickets cost £5 (for all performances) and are available in advance by calling 01323 845569 or in person from The Camera Centre in Hailsham High Street.
