Queen Elizabeth Hospital - Exhibition

We've been working in partnership with Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust on a permanent exhibition at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The aim is to promote art and wellbeing through photography.  And, to brighten up the hospital for staff, patients and visitors.

Our exhibition finally launched on 30 November 2023 as part of the charity's Light up a Life Remembrance Service

We don't want to wish anyone ill, but if you're getting treatment or visiting relatives, have a look downstairs in the Atrium near Costa.

Thanks to all Gateshead Camera Club members for donating your prints and mounts.  Hopefully this is just the start of a long term partnership with the Trust.

As always, new members are welcome to join Gateshead Camera Club and possibly get their images displayed in our ongoing exhibition.

Please come along to our 2023 exhibition. We're holding our first meeting of the season at St Mary's, an evening reception, Thursday 7 September, 6:30 - 8;30 p.m., note the earlier start time. The bar will be open to buy tea, coffee, alcoholic and soft drinks. Our new President Bob Shanks will give a presentation to introduce himself to members. You can view the exhibition, catch up on everyone's news and take part in the raffle.

Presentation Evening 2023

22 - 23 Exhibition

The first annual Gateshead Camera Club (GCC) exhibition was held on 4 March 1903 at Bewick Assembly Rooms, High West Street, Gateshead.  It was opened by Walter de Lancey Wilson, Mayor of Gateshead.  The following day, the Newcastle Daily Chronicle reported that 'members are to be complimented upon the excellence of their initial show'.  


Fast forward 119 years, GCC are holding their annual exhibition between 2 - 11 November 2022 at St Mary's Heritage Centre.  The title of the exhibition is 'Gateshead, People, Places and Pastimes'.  

Presentation Evening

We held our 2021/22 Presentation Evening at Gateshead Rugby Club (GRC) on 21 April. We welcomed Susan Budge, Mavis Ord's daughter who presented the Trophy  she has donated to the club in her mother's memory.  

The event was well attended, we all enjoyed pie, peas, etc, a raffle and made good use of the bar.  

Well done to all those awarded trophies and certificates and everyone who took part in our competitions.

Many thanks to Glen for organising the event and Alan for the video of our stunning images.  Also, thanks to Peter for photos and GRC's Billy for catering,
