The Literary and Philosophical Society of Newcastle upon Tyne

Reflections of Newcastle 1914-18 is a Lit & Phil collaboration with Northumbria University, Newcastle College and November Club, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project explores the intellectual, cultural and social life of Newcastle during the First World War, concentrating in and around the Lit & Phil. The research will be developed into a city centre trail, beginning and ending at the Lit & Phil, through the creation of an interactive eBook. This eBook will be promoted to community groups, schools and visitors as a historical and educational tool and creative project to help people explore the city and its historical buildings and areas of interest in relation to the First World War, as well as the Lit & Phil itself.

If you would like to find out more about the project and opportunities for you to help, either as a researcher or in another capacity, there is plenty of time. Please contact Ben Jones for more information on the project.
