A festival of photography promised by Click Live

There’s a new contender on the photo show calendar for 2024. The brainchild of The Click Group photo studio network CEO Charlie Kaufman (pictured), who will be familiar to any attendees of The Societies’ trade show and The Photography Show for his Click Props Backdrops business, Click Live is aiming to attract a younger audience than existing UK events, with its sights set on eventually growing into a Glastonbury-style festival of photography by the summer of 2026. With the initial draw for amateur, enthusiast and pro photographer attendees being education and high-profile speakers, the plan is for this to be a show that won’t shut its doors come teatime, but holds events late into the evening, providing ticket holders with the opportunity to socialise and network. There will also be 15 specially created shooting bays (‘Portfolio Pods’) at the show for those who want to get hands-on, a Click Live Photographer of the Year competition launched at the inaugural event, plus planned photo walks through more than 200 acres of ancient woodland. Venue NAEC Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire offers free parking and is close to Coventry train station. 23-25 June has been ring-fenced for the first three-day event.
