The Society is a local history society, providing:
LECTURES, EXCURSIONS, EXHIBITIONS, PUBLICATIONS,
and access to the events of other historical and archæological societies
The Morpeth Antiquarian Society was founded in 1946, and is a registered charity (No. 507640).
The aims of the Society are to stimulate public interest in Northumberland, and especially in Morpeth, to promote high standards of planning and architecture in the area; to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic or public interest in the area; to support the annual Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering which is organised by a Standing Committee of the Society, and to support other cultural events.
Monthly lectures are held during the winter months and visits to places of historic interest take place in the summer.
Meetings are held in the St. James' Community Centre, Wellway, Morpeth and begin at 7.15pm. Visitors and new members always welcome.
We meet on the last Friday of:
September, October, November, January, February, March (subject to change to avoid Good Friday) and April (AGM)
We are supporters of a long
campaign to establish a Museum in this lovely town which is full of interesting history and stories.
