The Club is pleased to be able to use its premises and resources, along with its renowned archive of mountaineering reports, books, art and artefacts to host and curate exhibitions that celebrate mountain history and culture. As well as spotlighting the work of contemporary artists and academics, the Club has also worked to mark key mountaineering anniversaries; bringing together records of the past to keep our history alive and engaging for climbers and the wider community alike.

Individual exhibitions may vary, but most take place at our Charlotte Road Club House.

A full list of past and upcoming exhibitions is shown below.

An Exhibition of Contemporary Mountain Photography

In 2023, the Alpine Club held a photo competition amongst its membership to seek out the best mountain photography from the past five years. After receiving over 100 entries, the four winners were selected by professional photographer John Cleare. The winning entries, along with a number of honorable mentions are now on display in the lecture hall at the Alpine Club's Charlotte Road premises.
