Fundraisers included a Christmas photo booth, a Christmas jumper competition, and an Easter egg hunt in order to raise the £200 they needed to hold the exhibition.

When the group finally raised enough funds, they managed to book a special preview evening for their work at the Shoebox Theatre last night, but due to the fire at Rendezvous, they were unable to get in to finish hanging their photos.

The work that has gone on display has been taken in different formats and covers a range of subjects including press work, pet portraiture, music photography and sport.

The ‘2k16’ exhibition date has been moved to Thursday, 12 and Friday, 13 May at the Shoebox Theatre.
