NEPA can trace its history back to the formation of the North of England Philatelic Society in Newcastle in 1903. As the society grew, it formed branches in Sunderland, Darlington and Shields. The Society was reorganized as an Association of Societies thus forming the North of England Philatelic Association at a special meeting in 1944.

Our member societies are all hoping to resume meetings for 2021/2022 season - updated programmes now available on this website

Our next auction will be on Saturday 27th November at the Bowburn Community Centre, Durham DH6 5AT on the 27th November 2021.
