Olympus photographic experience at the Circus

Southend-on-Sea, 08 July 2013 – Olympus UK are hosting a spectacular photographic experience at the Giffords Circus, Frampton-upon-Severn on Friday 2nd August 2013.

50 photography enthusiasts will have the chance to win a pair of free tickets to take part in this exclusive and rare opportunity to photograph amazing Circus performers under the big top, and capture all the excitement.

Olympus principal photographer and educator, Damian McGillicuddy will be on hand to demonstrate techniques on how best to capture the performers and colourful backdrops.

Guests will be able to get hands-on with the latest stunning cameras and lenses from Olympus, including the newly launched PEN EP-5 and photograph the performers in an exclusive photo-friendly performance.

The Giffords Circus and their spectacular painted wagons will be pitched in the beautiful Cotswold village of Frampton-upon-Severn, which is said to have the longest village green in England, and is 22 acres in size.

Every visitor will also be treated to a “mug of tea and a big slice of cake” and will be able to enter an exciting photographic competition to win a fabulous PEN EP-5 camera, the winner will be announced after the event.

Tickets to the event are free, but there are only 50 pairs available. These can be won by entering at www.olympusmag.co.uk//circus. The closing date is 21st July.

Ooooh, now this really appeals to me. Shame it's during school holidays as it would mean leaving Debbie without the car for the day (during term time she would be at work) and she won't be best pleased! I'll have to sweet-talk her when she gets home. I expect there will be a huge demand for this, so getting tickets probably won't be easy anyway.

A one in a hundred chance of winning an E-P5 is pretty good odds!

Well, I've done the difficult bit, negotiated permission from Debbie should I get tickets, and I've applied. Anyone else applying?

I should think we will hear soon, if we have been successful. It would be a shame if nobody from the forum got to go; even just one representative would enable us all to share the experience through their pictures.

Yay, just got mine. Need to work out how to get there now, only an hour from work so I might be able to squeeze it into a longish day without taking any holiday
