They are, Frank, but as Ian says nobody seems to be promoting them and the Ilford scheme of a few years ago does seem to have gone dormant.

Nearly all, if not all, the "good news about film" announcements centre around the growth of film and mainly it would seem colour film. There is really nothing about the promotion of darkroom work

The problem may be that of a variation on the chicken and egg. conundrum. How does anyone of any group find out enough about potential demand to make investment in darkroom facilities?

Certainly you need people less cautious than me. The last event I went to was a 40th birthday party pre-Covid where there wasn't a single person taking any photos with a even a digital camera. It was 100% i Phones!
