Easter Fun at Beamish

Sat 15th - Mon 17th Apr

Join us for some Easter fun this Spring, we’ll have loads of egg-citing activities across the museum including baking, crafts and games.

Explore the museum to find out how Easter was celebrated in the 1800s, 1900s and 1940s and sample some amazing baking along the way!

Here’s just some of the fun we’ve got planned;

  • Take part in our Easter egg trail – can you find all the eggs the Easter Bunny has left around the museum?
  • See (and taste!) traditional Easter baking.
  • 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?
  • Up at Pockerley Old Hall, the Georgian folk will be dying eggs to jarp and roll, you can help them decorate the area ready for Easter, as well as making a paper flower to take home.
  • If you’re visiting us on Easter Sunday, head to the dentist’s waiting room in The Town, where you can decorate an egg, whilst on Easter Monday we’ll be rolling the eggs in The Town park at 11am, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.
  • Our 1940s Farm will be making carrot lollies and getting all crafty with Easter cards and rabbit finger puppet making!
