St Cuthbert's Society 

The latest issue of our biannual alumni magazine, the Cuthbert’s Chronicle, is now online.

If you would like to see previous editions they can be viewed online via the webpage.

We were saddened to hear that Tony (Antony L) Smith (1951-54) passed away on Friday 6 March 2020. He was a Refounder and will be known to older alumni.

At the present time all plans for summer events are on hold because of COVID-19.

However, our current Artist in Residence, film-maker Paul Sng, is undertaking a project Letters to Cuth’s, which will celebrate the history of the Society and the arrival of women students in this 50th anniversary year. We're looking for micro fiction, short stories, poems, letters and any anecdotes from your time at Cuth's, which will be used to create a narrative voiceover presented over images of filmed space in Durham. If you'd like to submit something, get involved in the film or arrange a chat with Paul to find out more, you can contact him by emailing directly at or by emailing Katherine Dodd (Communications Support Officer) at
