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 Outing 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, an Autumn Concert in October/November, a Freshers’ Reunion and other Festive Events (a Christmas Lunch and an Afternoon Tea and Film) in December. Guests are always welcome at NCA events.
In the last year (2019), for example, we had a tour of the Lit & Phil in Newcastle, together with an exploration of the Stephenson Quarter with lunch afterwards at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, an annual dinner at the Northern Counties Club in Newcastle, a visit to the Bowes Museum and its special collections, a trip to see the Chillingham wild cattle, a boat trip on the River Tyne, a pre-Concert dinner at the Sage, Gateshead, followed by a Pitmen Poets’ concert, Christmas lunch at the County Hotel in Newcastle, and a Festive Afternoon at the Tyneside Cinema, complete with afternoon tea and a film (The Holly & the Ivy, 1952). The Cambridge Lecture in 2019 on ‘The Kennedys and The Gores’ was given by Professor Tony Badger, former lecturer in the History Department of Newcastle University (1971 to 1991), Paul Mellon Professor of American History at Cambridge and Master of Clare College until 2014, and currently Professor of American History at Northumbria University in Newcastle upon Tyne.
