From experimental to mainstream we pride ourselves on seeking out speakers and demonstrators with a broad spectrum of skills and outlooks; something for everyone, in fact.
Recent visiting artists have included a print-maker creating finely detailed woodcuts, a mixed-meida painter working hand-in-glove with accidental effects, and a traditional seascape artist.
Our members are always keen to join in with informed questions and comments, making for lively debate and a relaxed atmosphere.
We use a full range of modern camcorder equipment to broadcast flair and ability in large easy-to-see imagery, which for the audience is both informative and entertaining in one package

The new venue from Jan 2019 is Brixham Rugby Club, Rea Barn Road, Brixham.
