Traditional Baking - Twilight Experience

£85 per person (light supper included)

Nothing beats the mouthwatering smell and taste of freshly baked goods from a coal-fired range so join us and take part in a spot of Traditional Baking!

Come and experience the delights of making your own delicious traditional baking in the period setting of our 1940s Farm kitchen.

Join members of our knowledgeable Food Team for this evening of enjoyable baking where you will be guided through the recipes and given hints and tips, all in a relaxing period setting.  Included in your experience is a Beamish bag, to help you carry all your delicious goods home.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with the experience! It was a lovely relaxed and cosy atmosphere, the teachers were incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and I couldn’t believe how many lovely things we made. Thank you for a wonderful evening! This will be a special memory and I can’t wait to try other experiences. Jessica

I had a really fun time! The day was relaxed and the tutors friendly and knowledgeable. We made so many things and still had time for a chat and a cuppa!

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Best Christmas gift ever! We will be coming back to do more courses.
