1 city, 10 hours, 20 themes, 20 photos

The FaB Photomarathon charts a psychogeographical ramble through the streets of Bath. See a different side of Bath in the results of this creative annual event which draws photographers of all ages and skill levels.
That’s right, the challenge is laid down again! You have 10h to take 20 photos following 20 themes in the correct order. Both film and digital entries are welcome, the results will be exhibited during the FaB Festival fortnight.


Saturday 29th April, starting 10am, finishing around 8pm.


We will give you 20 themes split between 2 meeting points to complete over 10 hours. At the finish line (the 3rd meeting point) there will be FaB people to download your images (no editing allowed) and collect your films and of course time to have a drink with you new friends and share your experiences... We will then process and print your images ready for exhibition.


All images get exhibited during the FaB Festival fortnight.

What do I need to bring?

A camera of any type:
Film cameras need to take 35mm film - roll of film provided.
Digital Cameras will need to start off with a blank memory card, make sure all those important pics are saved at home!
Extra camera/card if you want to take more than Photomarathon photos on the day.
Don't forget to fully charge your batteries.


We’ll tell you nearer the time. It’ll be somewhere central and easy to find. Once you’ve registered we’ll have your contact details and will let you know in due course.
