About us





The Newcastle upon Tyne Rotary Club, was the first Rotary club to be established in the north-east of England and only the tenth in RIBI. We celebrated our centenary in 2015.

Founded on 20th August 1915 with an initial membership of 50 local business men, the club went on to sponsor 25 more clubs in the north of England. 

For over a century we met as a traditional lunchtime club but it has become apparent that this is no longer appropriate in  the twenty-first century so we are presently moving to a new format. Our vision is to continue to give people in Newcastle the opportunity to be part of all that membership of Rotary has to offer.
