Easter Fun at Beamish

Fri 30th Mar - Mon 2nd Apr

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 we’ve got planned:

  • Take part in our Beamish Easter 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.
  • Make an Easter bonnet from Saturday in the Pit Village School.
  • On Sunday and Monday, Georgian folk will be decoratingĀ eggs to jarp at Pockerley Old Hall, visitors can help with Easter preparations, as well as making a paper flower to take home.
  • If you’re visiting us onĀ Easter Saturday, Sunday and Monday then head to the dentist’s waiting room in The Town, where you can decorate an egg then roll it in The Town park at 11am, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. Whose will go the furthest?
  • From Saturday, our 1940s Farm will be making carrot lollies (a real treat!) and getting all crafty with Easter cards and rabbit finger puppet making.

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.

As with all daytime events, you can use your Unlimited Pass to join us for these events.
