Empire Weekend 2020

Sun 24th - Mon 25th May

There’ll be a range of activities to get involved with during our Empire Weekend event (24th & 25th May).

Empire Day was first celebrated in 1902 and was traditionally held on 24th May on the birthday of Queen Victoria. The day was intended to encourage people, especially children, to be aware of their duties as citizens of the British Empire. Join us in our 1900s Town as we explore this traditional event.

As with all daytime events, you can use your Unlimited Pass or Friends of Beamish membership to enjoy this special event.
