London South East Meetings (1st Mondays)

Twitter Captial London
London, South East - Petts Wood


We meet on the first Monday of every month at 7pm in the function room to the right of the bar at The Daylight Inn, Sation Square, Petts Wood.  It is on the north east side of Petts Wood Station. 

This local group is not aimed specifically at people living in around Petts Wood: the location is chosen because it has good public transport links to various parts of SE London and it is with easy driving distance for Croyden round to Dartford.

The evenings are open to all whether RPS Members or non-members; you just need to enjoy photography and want to meet with like-minded people.  We typically have about 20 to 25 attendees which is enough for good discussion but small enough for all to participate.

The format for a typical evening is:-

 - presentation of about 30 minutes by one of the attendees of a project or of recent work

 - "picture sharing" where attendees upload (Max.) five images to Dropbox which are shown to the group; these images can be for discussion or (constructive) critique by the group - or just images to enjoy!

 - discussion of current or future group projects or exhibitions

 - the evening closes by selection of a volunteer to do the opening presentation at the next meeting

Although this is a new venue, we expect many of the attendees will have a social drink in the bar afterwards; and maybe even a social drink in the bar before the meeting.

Booking is required.  You can see the dates of future meetings here (Note: these may not display in date order!)

Or you can contact the organiser Mike ( here ) or Julian ( here).


The station has direct trains from the following central London Stations:-

 - Blackfriars / Cannon Street / Charing Cross / London Bridge / Victoria

And returns back to all these stations except Blackfriars.

These services call at stations across SE London including:-

 - Lewisham / New Cross

Queensway (the other side of the railway) has bus routes 208 R3 and R7.  The 208 links Lewisham, Catford, Bromley and Orpington.

The street parking restrictions end at 6.30pm.

The postcode for the The Daylight Inn in the middle of Station Square, Petts Wood is BR5 1LZ


Our annual member exhibition (LRMPE 2024) is all ready to be installed and opens on Wednesday 20th March until Sunday 24th with the Open Evening on Thursday 21st march at the Espacio Gallery Bethnal Green Road.  There will be 104 mounted prints by 104 London Members plus a rolling digital disply of "second" images.  Other images from some of London Region's activities will also be on display along with a rehanging of the RPS London - CafeArt Photography Mentoring Group Exhibition recently shown in Outney Library.  More details here.

All of our regular monthly meetings are being held on the usual dates; N London and Bookworms are hybrid meetings (in-person and online); SW London and SE London are now in-person only.  We have introduced a London Zoom (online only) for those who cannot easily reach the three regular locations. click here for details of all our events.
