Festival of 50s 2020

Thu 9th - Sun 12th Jul

From Thursday, 9th to Sunday, 12th July, be transported back to the days of Teddy boys, Pathé News and petticoats at our Festival of 50s.

Dig out your 50s finery and rock ‘n’ roll along to this fabulous event. Enjoy fantastic 50s food, fashion and fun!


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

Beamish is building a 1950s Town and 1950s Farm, and a Georgian inn where visitors can stay overnight as part of the Remaking Beamish project, courtesy of a £10.9million grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The 1950s Town is set to include houses, shops, police house, cafe, cinema and recreation area. Aged Miners’ Homes will be a centre for people living with dementia and their families and carers.
