The Northumbrian Cambridge Association has brought together Cambridge alumni living in the North East of England for almost 90 years.

We meet in most months for walks, talks, concerts, films, freshers and festive events, an annual dinner, and an AGM. For more information, see our events pages, or contact a Committee Member.

The Cambridge Lecture in 2017 was given after the AGM 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 Back to the future? 10 Things You Really Ought to Know about Democracy in Ancient Greece, which was very well received.  Our 2018 Cambridge Lecture, Stalin's Playlist, will be given Professor Marina Frolova-Walker (Professor of Music History at Cambridge, and Fellow and Director of Music at Clare College).

We always welcome new members (the subscription is £10 a year). For information about joining, or attending a forthcoming event, please contact us using the Get in Touch link below. Events for the remainder of 2018 are:
