The Society was established in the 1970s. It aims to encourage the study and enjoyment of architecture, buildings, their contents and settings by organising lectures and visits. It usually holds its lectures in the Fine Art Lecture Theatre, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne. and enjoys a close association with the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape of Newcastle University. (Read our constitution, revised October 2018).


In the light of current coronavirus precautions the committee has decided to postpone indefinitely the AGM scheduled for 30th May. We hope to re-arrange it later this year. Planning for all other activities is in abeyance until some semblance of normality is restored.

We will be keeping this website up to date with developments, and also informing all members of developments via the post and e-mail.

We have not taken these decisions lightly and are sure that you will understand that we have no choice in the present circumstances.
