Durham Castle Lecture Series

The Durham Castle Lecture Series is devoted to bringing high-profile speakers to Durham who can contribute to academic and public discussion on issues of global significance. The presenters have made an outstanding contribution to their fields and we are delighted to host them at University College.

This is your chance to see, hear, and learn from incredible speakers: to ask questions and think about answers.

The lectures take place in the stunning setting of Durham Castle's Great Hall. With a maximum capacity of 250, the Great Hall provides a unique, historic location.

The Durham Castle Lecture series has been made possible thanks to a generous gift from Santander Universities.

All of the lectures in the series are free and open to all.

Seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. No tickets or reservations are required.

Doors open from 7.45pm. Lectures begin at 8pm, with questions for the speaker at 9pm.
