Carlisle’s First Learning Centre: Tullie House

With no university in Carlisle, Tullie House filled that gap, providing a range of educational facilities as well as containing a library and museum. When the university came, Tulle House buildings became the campus and this and other recent changes will be examined. All aspects of this diverse establishment will be covered in Denis Perriam’s talk, featuring some of those people who made it a success

Denis Perriam was born in Carlisle and began his working life at Tullie House, becoming assistant keeper at Beamish Museum and then historic buildings inspector for Cumbria County Council. Since 1987 he has been a freelance historian researching and writing his books, on subjects ranging from fortified buildings to railways.
