To book any of the talks below, contact once it’s stated on this website, in a newsletter, on Facebook or Twitter that booking has opened. Heaton History Group members have a priority booking window:

  1. Wed 25 October The Mapping of Newcastle (Mike Barke)
  2. Wed 22 November The Great Flood of 1771 (Gordon Scorer)
  3. Wed 13 December Sir James Knott (Mike Coates)

In August, we will put on a guided walk which, because participant numbers are restricted, has been advertised to members only through our newsletter and at talks. Our talks programme will resume in September.


Unless stated otherwise,  our talks now take place at St George’s United Reformed Church on Newton Road, High Heaton NE7 7HP.

There are excellent public transport links including the numbers 18, 38, 52, 553, which stop right by the church.

There is car parking on the surrounding streets. The nearest car park is in Paddy Freeman’s Car Park just round the corner off Freeman Road, about a 3 minute walk away.


All live talks will be free to members and cost £2.50 for non-members. Once booking has opened, reserve your place by contacting Maria on or 07443 594154

We also offer at least two guided walks a year but, because numbers are limited, these are advertised to members only.
