Loans Boxes

Beamish has loans boxes, containing objects, photographs and ideas for activities, which can be borrowed free of charge.

We have a range of themed loans boxes containing objects, photographs and ideas for activities, which you can borrow, free of charge, to use with your group.

Each loans box is themed to inspire your group, topics include events and celebrations, nights out, domestic, wartime, man’s world, costume and medical kit.  Boxes can be borrowed for up to three weeks and should be booked in advance (a small deposit is required).
