Community photography group Leicester Lo Fi are celebrating the formal opening of their new community darkroom next week. After months of work, enormous effort by Lo-Fi members and support from Braunstone Park and Rowley Fields community ward funding and also Westcotes community ward funding, the facility is finally finished. Lo Fi will also be launching their new education program for 2018 supported using public funding by National Lottery through Arts Council England.

See a working darkroom in action, view some of their previous group exhibitions, have your picture taken with our popular Kamra-e-Faoree (Afghan box camera) and enjoy the musical experience that is Rich Myoptik. His double gramophone gambit is a particular joy to behold, fusing his radio voice with classic 78s from a bygone age where photography was a thing of miraculous proportions, as indeed were the cloaks and the penny farthingsā€¦

The dark room opens on Friday 8th December from 6pm until 9pm at 376A Western Road Leicester LE3 0ED
