Ushaw Lecture Series

The Ushaw Lecture Series celebrates the cultural and research significance of the remarkable bibliographical, archival and material-cultural collections at Ushaw, near Durham City, and the wider history of which they are expressions. The lectures cover music, art, drama, poetry and literature, architecture, material-culture, politics, science and theology.


Lectures take place at Ushaw, 4 miles west of Durham City. Transport is available between Durham City and Ushaw; if you would like to take advantage of this, please register for your place at least 5 days in advance of the lecture and tell us at the time of booking.


All are welcome; registration is essential. If you wish to attend, please register here (registration opens 3 weeks before each lecture).
