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 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 (2018), for example, we had a tour of the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers, Newcastle upon Tyne, together with Robert Stephenson’s Engine Works and lunch at the Station Hotel afterwards, an annual dinner at the Northern Counties Club in Newcastle, a Stockton & Darlington Railway Day, a spring walk at Cragside, a summer outing to Togston Hall, East Lodge, the home of one of our members and Amble, a pre-Concert dinner at the Sage, Gateshead followed by a Sixties Gold 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 Man Who Invented Christmas, 2017).
The Cambridge Lecture in 2018 was given by Professor Marina Frolova-Walker, Professor of Music History at Cambridge, and Fellow and Director of Music at Clare College. Professor Frolova-Walker gave a stimulating lecture on ‘Stalin's Playlist’, which was very well received.
