9th Saturday, 1pm – This is England on the Sprocket Rocket
Big Ben, Union Jacks, Tower bridge, black cabs and scones… have a go at capturing all things British with this “I love London” Sprocket Rocket workshop.

16th Saturday from 11am – The Royal Scavenger Hunt
Let’s celebrate the forthcoming wedding with a race through the streets of London capturing a list of items pertaining to weddings and the royal couple. Each team will have a DianaF+ camera plus the instant back and a concise list of things to capture within a specific time limit. The team who completes the royal challenge will be crowned and knighted in store (not really) but they’ll receive special prizes!
Tickets are £10 and include lend-a-camera, film, discounts on film processing and everything you’ll need for the hunt. Please book in store or ring us 02074341466 to secure a spot. Group bookings are welcome (4-5 in each team).
10th & 17th Sundays, 12pm – Lomowalk: Carters Steam Fair
There is nothing more photogenic than refurbished pre-1960’s British fairground rides. The colours, the motion blur and the vintage artistry captured on the LC-A+ camera is nothing short of stunning. Come with us on this walk and be transported back to the days when you too were a youngster (unless you still are!). Tickets include a ride on the dodgems because who says you’re too old for that!?
Tickets are £10 and include lend-a-camera, a roll of film, discounts on film processing plus a ride on the dodgems.
19th Tuesday, 1pm – Seeing Red
A make-your-own-redscale film workshop! We’ll teach you how to create your very own redscale rolls and the principle behind them. Workshop includes 3 rolls of film and a presentation.
Tickets are £10 and include a pack of Lomography film (3rolls), a presentation and discounts on film processing.
24th Sunday, 1pm – The Great Film Swap: Joining the Continents
Hong Kong was once a colony of Britain, so now it’s time to merge the two places together again. Let’s go on a hunt and put black cabs and union jacks back on the streets of the Kowloon side as east meets west in this collaboration of cities. We’ll have an in-depth presentation of how multiple exposures work and then shoot a roll each to be sent to our sister stores in HK for them to shoot over. The best bit is that you get to borrow the LC-A+ camera all week (until the 27th)!
Tickets are £10 and include a presentation, lend-a-camera all weekend, a roll of film to double on and discounts on extra film purchased. Please bring a valid ID (driver’s license, passport).
