Hire Us

Beamish is an award winning museum and has gained a reputation for exceptional event opportunities.

In line with government guidelines the museum has assessed the ability to hold weddings at Beamish during 2020. Although some restrictions have now been lifted the museum will not be in a position to hold weddings for the remainder of 2020. This will of course remain under review and a decision for 2021 be made in the new year.

From distinctive meeting room spaces and team building activities, to corporate ‘family days’; private dining opportunities, family celebrations and weddings, we offer unique locations and tailored packages to make any event, no matter how large or small, a real success.

Corporate Events

Beamish is the ideal place to impress clients, treat staff or have fun in an environment which is both safe and memorable.

“5/5 We were bowled over by how welcome and attentive everyone at Beamish was”

Private Events

Beamish offers a very different experience for special occasions. It is possible to hire a private space for a celebratory lunch, or an area of the Museum exclusively after hours. We offer fun and traditional activities suitable for groups.

“This so exceeded our expectations that it would be churlish to pick out anything as less than excellent.”
