Note; all in-person lectures except the August lecture and the Public Lecture on 26 Oct will be in Lecture Theatre 2, Herschel Building, Newcastle University, and not the room given in  the programme card. They will be live-streamed. If necessary because of continuing Covid-19 problems, they will move online. The flyer for each one, with Zoom information and Eventbrite booking details, will be e-mailed to members at the beginning of the relevant month and again a day or two before the meeting. Please e-mail events@newcastle-antiquaries.org.uk if flyers are not reaching you.

Click here for a poster giving details of our lectures from January to June 2022. We would be very glad if members would print off copies and put them up in appropriate places, such as local libraries. Or e-mail events@newcastle-antiquaries.org.uk for a glossy printed copy.
