Here at Beamish we tell the stories of the people of the North East in the 1800s, 1900s and 1940s, as well as in the 1950s with our new Remaking Beamish project.
Working with local communities is at the heart of what we do and each year we choose a different story to bring to life during February Half Term. Once the story has been chosen, our Learning Team work with local school children and Community Team involve local adults, to help the community to tell their story at the museum.
Across the nine days of the February Half Term, we recreate the important story with hands on activities to take part in. We’re currently working on our plans for February Half Term and will announce them shortly, what we can guarantee you is fascinating history brought to life, with plenty of family activities to get involved with! What’s more the whole museum will be open for you to enjoy including our real ice rink.
