Bebington Photographic Society - Wirral

The club was formed in 1897 as the Port Sunlight Camera Club and was exclusively for the Staff of Lever Brothers Ltd. In 1908 it merged with the Literary & Scientific Society and remained prominent until 1914.

Although mentions of the club can be found until the 1930’s, it wasn't until 1949, after World War II, when the Port Sunlight Photographic Club was revived for the employees of Lever Brothers. Associate Memberships was allowed in 1970’s (maximum 10% of the total Membership). In 1957, the club joined the Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union. In 1984, the sponsorship and the association with the Lever Empire were ceased, and thus, the club became an ‘open’ photographic club. In the same year, the club received a new name - Bebington & Port Sunlight Photographic Society which was changed to Bebington Photographic Society in 1988.

Our club brings together photographers of every level, including beginners, seasoned photographers & accomplished competition winners.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, we continue to meet virtually every Tuesday on Zoom.
