We are Durham City Freemen

The Freemen of Durham are the members of the eight Guilds or Companies comprising Barbers, Butchers, Cordwainers, Curriers, Drapers, Joiners, Masons and Plumbers. These Guilds are all that remain of the sixteen in the Middle Ages of which there is written evidence going back as far as 1450.

Durham City Freemen
Annual Dinner 6 October 2018

Guest speaker - George Patterson

I am pleased to announce that the guest speaker for our Annual Dinner is George Patterson. A Scotsman with strong connections with the north-east and particularly Durham City.

His working life encompassed both craft and academic experience and I am certain you will find his talk extremely interesting and entertaining.

A brief profile of George is set out on the Events/Annual Dinner page.
