SUMMER OUTINGS 2014:

1) Leeds Waterfront FestivalSaturday 28 & Sunday 29 June 2014

This is the 7th Leeds Waterfront Festival, and it promises to be bigger than last year. The Festival weekend is the one before Le Grand Depart of the Yorkshire Tour de France. So get into party mood and have a great day out as part of the 100 days of culture. The Dragon Boat Race will be on Saturday, but, as of today May 5, the whole programme for the weekend hasn’t been published yet.

For directions and other info please visit:  www.leedswaterfrontfestival.com

2) Tour de France; Grand DepartSaturday 5 & Sunday 6 July 2014

THE event Yorkshire is talking about, can’t not have this as a summer outing!

As you may know, we are planning on capturing as many images as possible in the broadest photographic sense.

The special projects team will regularly launch specific projects around this subject. But to receive these you will need to sign up for the mailing list. If you haven’t done this but would like to join, than send an email to: reina.vdhoek@xs4all.nl

As travelling during this weekend will be very difficult, if not impossible unless you are by bike or foot, I’d like to say that pictures could be taken from where ever you are along the route as long as there is a clear link with the Tour de France.

The results of the project will be used for an HPS exhibition and a presentation evening on Monday 3 November.

3) An evening at Brimham Rocks - Wednesday 16th July (between 6pm and dusk) Note: This event was originally scheduled for May but postponed due to the bad weather at that time.

Maybe this outing can encourage you to take a different approach on what you are usual looking for in an image? If you like we can decide to meet at the picnic area at around 7pm. If you bring a warm or cold drink, I’ll bring some cakes.

I believe sunset to be around 9pm on May 28. Please let me know if you are planning on meeting me at the picnic area. reina.vdhoek@xs4all.nl

For directions and other info please visit: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/brimham-rocks/ The park entrance is free but unless you are a national trust member, there might be a fee for parking.

If getting there will be a problem for you, then send me an email and I’ll try to set you up with a driver. The other way round, please let me know if you have some empty seats available in your car.

4) Coach trip to Bridlington and Bempton Cliffs - Saturday 26 July 2014

After setting off from Harrogate at 8.30am we will head to Bempton Cliffs, after being here for approx. 2 hours we will leave for Bridlington but there will be a short stop at Flamborough Head. We will leave Bridlington at around 4.30 / 5pm.

Regina Wilkinson, who is very familiar with the area, will be joining us on the bus as well. She can answer all your questions.

There is a possibility to have one of the Bempton Cliffs Volunteers join us on a guided tour. For this we need to do a donation, so please let me know in advance if you would enjoy this.

There are costs involved for this trip: £14 per person. If you haven’t signed up yet (30 people already have) than send an email to: reina.vdhoek@xs4all.nl

There is a maximum of 48 seats available.

5) Saltaire FestivalSunday 14 September 2014

In December 2001, Saltaire was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is a very photogenic place with lots of variety and interests. Also a visit to Salts Mill, with a David Hockney exhibition on one of the floors, is worthwhile. For me Saltaire is a place to go for inspiration.

During this particular weekend, Saltaire Festival will be on. The programme is still being developed: “As usual, we will have top-class comedy, open gardens – with an added twist this year, live music, exhibitions and local performers in unique settings around the village, and lots of food and drink in the fantastic surroundings of Roberts Park.”

You can reach Saltaire by train, bus or car.
