Interested in architectural history?

From the distant to the recent past, in the making, and anywhere in the world?

Join our Society now, for a stimulating programme of talks, visits and social events.

Examples of interesting architecture

The Society was established in the 1970s. It aims to encourage the study and enjoyment of architecture, buildings, their contents and settings by organising a monthly series of lectures through the winter months, and tours and visits to places of interest - near and far - in the summer. The lectures normally take place in Newcastle upon Tyne and the Society enjoys a close association with the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape of Newcastle University. In the current coronavirus crisis, we have switched our lectures to Zoom and recordings are available on YouTube to members.

Membership is open to all, the only qualification being an interest in the subject at whatever level.
