Northumbrian Cambridge Association
The Northumbrian Cambridge Association has brought together alumni living in the North East of England for over 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, look at our What We Do page (link above), or contact a Committee Member (Who to Contact, link above).
The remaining events of our planned calendar of events for 2021 will all go ahead now. Booking forms can be found for each event below.
We always welcome new members (the subscription is £10 a year). For information about joining, or attending a forthcoming event, please contact us using our How to Join page (link above).
The annual lecture Violence and Hope on Pakistan’s Border: an Educational Encounter was given after the AGM and buffet on September 17th by Dr David L. Gosling, well known as both a scientist and a theologian. A report of the lecture can be found here.
We currently can add a further ex-officio member to our executive committee and invite other members to consider volunteering. Could any member who would like to join the Committee please contact our President, Heather Cordell.

County Hotel, Newcastle
Tea & Film
Marking a return to large-scale music making, and in memory of those who have lost their lives to Covid-19,
this performance features a massed orchestra and choir, consisting of Royal Northern Sinfonia, Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia (including your own NCA President, Heather Cordell), and over 200 musicians from the North East community.
This year we have booked again for the County Hotel, on Neville Street, opposite Newcastle Central Station. This fine Grade 2 Listed Victorian hotel has preserved many of its original features, and, as last time, we will be dining in the beautiful County Suite, exclusively ours, together with its own bar, for the
duration of the lunch.
Over the last seven years our Festive Afternoon Tea and Film at the Tyneside has proved to be a wonderful pre-Christmas treat, and so we’re offering it to members and friends again this year. Once more we will be directed to the Tyneside Cinema’s digital lounge, beautifully decorated with Christmas baubles, tree, stockings and a cheerful fire. We will be served a glass of prosecco followed by sandwiches, cakes, tea or coffee on vintage china, and popcorn and a candy cane to go with the film!
