Public Lecture Series

Northumbria Public Lectures

The Northumbria University Public Lecture Series celebrates the achievements of leading Northumbria Professors alongside high profile external speakers.

These lectures are delivered by high profile guests from the public domain and leading lights from Northumbria University. The public lectures celebrate the achievements of each of our speakers who come from all walks of life - from business and economics to health and the arts.

Each lecture, unless stated, will be held at 6.30pm in the Presentation Hall, Design Building, City Campus East. Refreshments will be available from 6pm.

All lectures are free and open to all. Northumbria University is committed to promoting the use of public transport and our campus is close to bus and Metro links.


If you do travel by car, we offer parking free of charge in our City Campus East main car park adjacent to the lecture venues. Visitors are advised to use the visitor and hunt parking spaces highlighted in pink and blue on this map.

Should these spaces be occupied, we also have overflow spaces in our Camden car park - marked space 7 on this map.
