The Newcastle 'Lit & Phil' was founded in 1793 as a "conversation club" by the Reverend William Turner and others, and this was more than fifty years before the London Library, with an annual subscription was originally one guinea. The Lit and Phil library contains works in French, Spanish, German and Latin; its contacts were international, and its members debated a wide range of issues, but religion and politics were prohibited. Women were first admitted to the library in 1804. In February 2011, actor and comedian Alexander Armstrong became President of the Lit & Phil. He launched their funding appeal at a special gala event. At the start of 2012, membership of the Library reached 2,000, the highest number since 1952.
