Friends of the World of Bede

The Friends of the World of Bede work to support and promote a wider knowledge of the educational and cultural importance of the world which Bede would have known, and the values of scholarship, innovation and community which the Wearmouth-Jarrow monastery practised.

The Friends of the World of Bede arrange a programme of social events visits and a lecture series, all exploring the world of Bede. Working with Groundwork South and North Tyneside since the trust opened Jarrow Hall in 2016, the Friends also offer financial, academic and other support for the site.

Each member of the Friends receives unlimited access to Jarrow Hall, a discount in the Bede Museum shop and Hive Coffee Company, complimentary entry to Friends lectures, the opportunity to take part in Friends events and visits and the Friends of the World of Bede newsletter.
