About this Platinum Sponsor

 

The Freemen of the City of Newcastle upon Tyne can trace their origins back to Anglo-Saxon times where the free men were a middle class, comprised of those who were permitted to carry arms for the defence of the city.

 

The organisation survives into modern times as a conservation body, primarily aimed at protecting the many of the parks, Town Moors and green spaces for the benefit of the City’s residents. The organisation is also a charitable trust to give means-tested financial assistance to Freemen, their spouse, sons and daughters.
