The Devonshire Bowl
One Frame Competition 12 July 2018

Entries for the first ever Members competition have now closed.

The Society's first "One Frame" competition will take place at 41 Devonshire Place on Thursday 12 July 2018, and it will be a 16 sheet single frame format. Entries for the competition are now closed, as we have received the maximum number of applications. To make this a memorable occasion, all members are invited to join in and enjoy the day. This is an "open" event, enabling members to compete in all the subjects and classes recognised under the existing ABPS categories. The Members will decide who should get the Bowl, as all those attending will be able to vote.

Past Meetings

Our Archivist holds about 700 handouts provided by displayers at meetings since 1918. These range from single sheets of paper listing the items on display to extensive publications including complex images that can be regarded as significant contributions to the literature. Explanatory notes were at first provided only occasionally but have become normal practice since the 1980s. Many contain material of value to researchers and their production quality has steadily improved. These have been scanned and converted to searchable PDF documents.

5pm meetings that have been videoed may be viewed on YouTube, accessible through links on the members’ home page.

Forthcoming Meetings at No. 41

Thursday 28 June 2018 at 4.30pm. AGM & Philatelic Collections Display.
The philatelic collections display this year will feature two areas of the Middle East, Hejaz and Syria. The first six frames present part of a collection of Hejaz which was formed by Martin Hay and generously donated by him to the Society in 2017. The second six frames will follow the policy of displaying different sections of the UPU Collection of foreign countries, Syria having not been displayed before. Together, these 12 frames should form a fascinating and informative display, as both countries have close historic associations.

Thursday 12 July 2018 at 1pm. The Devonshire Bowl: One Frame Competition.
