 Events in the region

Follow these links to find out more about events organised by others in the North East (or occasionally further afield if they involve our members), this month and through the year. If you know of an event that might interest our members, please e-mail the website editor with full details.


  • The latest list of acquisitions for our library can be consulted here
  • Historical enactment group Time Bandits have produced a free pamphlet, aimed at schools and other interested people about the Great Flood of 1771, linking it to flooding on the Tyne in modern times. This is part of their work for the Unlocking the Archives project supported by the Antiquaries and the Heritage Lottery Fund. You can download the internet version here.
  • Northumberland Archives at Woodhorn are exploring the possibility of a funding application to the Heritage Lottery Fund to expand and promote the work they have been doing on the Manorial Documents Register for Northumberland. Before doing this, they need to demonstrate the need for such a project, and so have issued a questionnaire; they would be grateful if people would spend a few minutes completing it, and returning it by e-mail.
  • DigVentures have begun crowdfunding for a third year of digging at Lindisfarne this year, and also for one at Coldingham. Follow this link if you would like to contribute to these or other archaeological projects.
  • The 2017 volume of Archaeologia Aeliana has been delayed for various reasons, but is now back on track. It will probably not be available until late spring 2018, however.
