Christmas might look a little different this year but we know that for many of you, the festive season wouldn’t be complete without seeing Father Christmas at Beamish.

We’re planning to host Christmas festivities at the museum during December, in line with COVID-19 Secure safety guidance. We will keep everyone updated as we continue to follow government restrictions.

This year, with the museum currently closed due to the national lockdown, we’re delighted to be able to offer the unique experience to enjoy an exclusive video call with Father Christmas from his cosy Christmas cottage at Beamish.

Father Christmas will be by the fireside in his festive Edwardian cottage at the museum, chatting to children via video call!

Please note, this is a virtual experience to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. This experience does not include a visit to Beamish Museum.

Father Christmas will be talking to children about their present wish list and he’s sure to know a few things about them already, as he checks his naughty or nice list. Each child will receive a digital certificate after the call.

You can even invite your friends and family to be a part of this magical experience from the comfort of their own home!

What’s included with this fabulously festive experience?

  • Enjoy an exclusive 10 minute call with Father Christmas who will be calling you live from his cosy festive Edwardian cottage at Beamish Museum.
  • Father Christmas will chat to your children about their present wish list – he’s sure to know a few things about them already!
  • You can invite friends and other family members to join in with the experience from the comfort of their own home.
  • The price for this experience is £16 and includes a video call with Father Christmas for up to four children, (up to 4 additional children £2 each). Whether your friends and family live locally, or the other side of the world, our virtual calls mean you can join together online and share the experience with other children, friends and family.
  • Each child will receive a personalised digital certificate, based on an original image from the Beamish collection, after the call.
