The Western Region membership primarily spans the areas around Bristol, Bath, Gloucester, Taunton and Swindon.
As our region covers the Royal Photographic Societies headquarters in Bristol, we are proud to host our regular monthly meetings at RPS House, which has fantastic facilities and access to the current RPS exhibitions etc.
