Northumbrian Cambridge Association

Northumbrian Cambridge Association

The Northumbrian Cambridge Association serves Cambridge alumni living in the North East of England, from the Borders to North Yorkshire. Apart from our annual AGM, we organise a full programme of events in the year, namely, a Winter Visit in February, an Annual Dinner in March, a Spring Outing in April, a Spring Walk in May, a Summer Outing in June, a Freshers' Welcome Party in September, the Annual Cambridge Lecture in September/October, an Autumn Concert in October/November and Festive Events (a Christmas Lunch and an Afternoon Tea and Film) in December. Guests are always welcome at NCA events.

In the last year (2017), for example, we had a tour of the Northumbria Police’s Hi-Tech Forth Banks Police Station, Newcastle and lunch at the Mantra Thai Dining Restaurant afterwards, an annual dinner at the Northern Counties Club in Newcastle, a Richard III Day in Barnard Castle, a spring walk at Belsay Hall, a summer outing to the Washington Wetland Centre, a pre-Concert dinner at the Sage, Gateshead followed by a Blues Band concert, Christmas lunch at the County Hotel in Newcastle, and a Festive Afternoon at the Tyneside Cinema, complete with afternoon tea and a film (Joyeux Noel, 2005).

The Cambridge Lecture in 2017 was given by Professor Paul Cartledge, A. G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture at the University of Cambridge, (2008-14) and Fellow of Clare College. Professor Cartledge gave a stimulating lecture on ‘Back to the future? 10 Things You Really Ought to Know about Democracy in Ancient Greece’, which was very well received.  

We always welcome new members (the subscription is £10 a year). Contact the Hon. Secretary, Andrena Telford or the Membership Secretary, Judy Vigurs.
