The Market is centrally placed in Bridgend (CF31 1DL). The Rhiw carpark is immediatly opposite the  Market, and offers 3 hours free car parking

We intend to use the 50 best prints from the Memorial Trophy Competition to hang at this venue for February and March.  In January we will use the space for an ad-hoc exhibition. This will bring our Federation, its photographers and their images to a new audience.
