Easter Fun at Beamish

Easter Fun at Beamish

Enjoy a cracking day out at Beamish this Easter with lots of egg-citing activities happening at the museum.

Here’s just some of the fun they've got planned:

 

  • Take part in our Easter egg trail. Can you find all the eggs the Easter Bunny has hidden around the museum?

  • See (and taste!) traditional Easter baking across the museum including fish on Good Friday.

  • Call in at Herron’s Bakery in The Town to purchase a delicious hot cross bun or a piece of simnel cake.

  • There will be a chance to make an Easter card in The Pit Village school on Saturday or why not make an Easter bonnet on Easter Sunday or Monday?

  • On Easter Sunday and Monday, Georgian folk will be decorating eggs to jarp at Pockerley Old Hall, visitors can help with Easter preparations, as well as making a paper flower to take home.

  • On Easter Sunday, head to the dentist’s waiting room in The Town, where you can decorate an egg, and on Easter Monday we’ll be rolling the eggs in The Town park at 11am, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. Whose will go the furthest?

  • Our 1940s Farm will be making carrot lollies (a real treat!) and getting all crafty with Easter cards and rabbit finger puppet making from 15th to 17th April!

  • Hop along to the museum to find out how Easter was celebrated in the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s! There’s plenty to see and do.

 

Beamish is a world famous open air museum that tells the story of life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s and stands in 300 acres of beautiful County Durham countryside. With so many things to see, Beamish is a wonderful day out for people of all ages.

 

Most of the houses, shops and other buildings you will see have been brought to Beamish, rebuilt and furnished as they once were. Some, such as Home Farm, Pockerley Old Hall and the drift mine, were here already.

You won't find objects displayed in glass cases at Beamish, you'll see them in their original context. What's more, you will meet our costumed staff who are proud of their heritage and happy to share their knowledge with visitors.

If you don’t fancy walking, there are vintage trams and buses, including our Access Bus, to make travelling around the museum easier, and even more exciting!
