This year the AGM was held at the new DLI Collection facility at Sevenhills, Spennymoor. Many thanks to the staff and Friends of the DLI for their hospitality and for a very interesting talk and tour of the Objects Collection storage facilities.

Some of the DLI collection can be seen on-line and local societies can organise future visits to Sevenhills.

The medals collection is currently housed at the University Library at Palace Green, Durham.

15th July 2017 - Yesterday Belongs to You at Beamish Museum - A return of our popular event which we are pleased to say will be hosted by Beamish Museum. Further details will be available soon. Will any society wishing to book a table please contact the Forum.
