Lomography Gallery Store Soho’s Great British Food Hunt.
This weekend join us as we take to the streets of London and capture the very best of the capitals traditional grub. These workshops are for everyone and anyone, so tuck right in!!
With the Queens Diamond Jubilee well and truly celebrated and the Olympics on the horizon, the bunting is still flying high. Lets continue to capture what makes London special and what better way than to get to grips with some of our favourite Lomography cameras and experience some of London’s most historical food hubs. Feast your eyes on some of the oldest and most famous Pie and Mash shops and of course, the great British Caff.
Everyone will have the chance to submit their favourite shots for an in-store exhibition during the Olympics.

When: 9th June, Saturday from 11am
What: LomoWalk: Cockney Geezers Pie and Mash Trail.

A traditional working-class food, originating from the east end of London, pie, mash and jellied eels shops have been around since the early 19th century. The good ol’ traditional pie with mash (and let’s not forget the liquor!) is still heavily popular and London is home to many of the longest running and most historical Pie houses today. Join us this weekend as we explore the great British pie in all its glory. There is only one way to capture the retro Formica tables, traditional tiled walls and more jellied eels than you can shake a stick at, with film of course. Take your pick between the LC-A or Lubitel 166+. Get to grips with how to capture the fabric of the old city and create the ‘piefect’ picture of a truly British meal.

Tickets are £15 and include a presentation, lend-a-camera LC-A or Lubitel 166+, a roll of film plus discounts on film processing.

When: 16th June, Saturday from 11am
What: LomoWalk: Home of the Greasy Spoon

Get the most out of your bread and honey (money!!) and join us as we explore the best british caff’s for our tommy tucker (supper!!). The famous Greasy Spoon is a fast dying trade; although we can’t see why, what more do you need than a full English fry up to put the world to rights!!! Soak up the sights, smells and sounds of this English tradition and create your very own foodie portraits of the ‘working mans’ caff!!

Tickets are £15 and include a presentation, lend-a-camera LC-A or Lubitel 166+, a roll of film plus discounts on film processing.

What: The Great UK Lomography Film Swap!

It’s time to get creative as we make some history of our own! Now that there are 3 wonderful Lomography stores in the UK, what better time than now to introduce the very first ‘Great UK Lomography Film Swap’. What does this mean you ask? Well our friends over at East London are going to get together with a bunch of crazy, keen, enthusiastic Lomographers (just like you) and shoot some rolls of films of their east end home. Then they will pass those rolls of film over to us to shoot over the top of! BUT – the fun doesn’t stop there. Once we have captured Soho in all its glory we will then hand these double exposed films to our newbies up north in Manchester. That’s a TRIPLE exposures!!
Tickets are £15 and include a presentation, lend-a-camera LC-A+, a roll of film plus FREE processing onto CD.
