We run training courses if you need some help and run competitions for those who like want to win awards. The club is a great way to meet new friends with a common interest. You can join a group or film crew or create a production and have people join you. The possibilities are endless and only limited by your imagination.
We meet each first Friday of the month in the brand new and very modern St. Joan’s Centre which is beside St Joan of Arc Catholic Church, 19 Tilford Road,Farnham, Surrey GU9 8DJ, just 200 yards South of Farnham Station.
Directions to us by car
From the Farnham Bypass (A31) at traffic lights take the turning for Farnham Station (B3001). NB from Guildford this is a left turn. From the opposite direction there is NO RIGHT TURN, so turn left and turn round etc! Go over the level crossing at Farnham Station. Take the right fork onto Tilford Road. Look out for the second road a short distance up on the right called Alfred Road. Turn left directly opposite this into what looks little more than a gap in the hedge marked after dark by red reflectors. You will find your free car park beside the church a short way down. The St Joan’s Centre is on the far side of the church from the car park.
