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 programmes for 2023/2024 are now available via this website, regretfully our northern outpost at Berwick has succumbed to the falling attendances and increase costs

Our next auction will be at the Bowburn Community Centre, Durham DH6 5AT 

on 18th May 2024.

 Viewing from 10.30am, Auction Starts 12.30pm

The NEPA Auction held on 25 November 2023 was another resounding success. A total of 600 lots went under the hammer and sales hit a new record of over £2,600.  Overall, 74% of the lots were sold, with hammer prices ranging from £1 to £75. Of the eighteen vendors, two sold 100% of their lots, whilst two sold less than 50% of theirs. A list of prices realised available via this link.
