Beamish Museum can offer you a distinctive setting like no other for your corporate event. 

Corporate Hire Offer

Beamish Museum is the ideal venue to impress clients, treat staff or have fun in a completely unique environment. It’s the only venue in the North East where you can turn up to your business meeting on a tram – and all income generated supports the museum, which is a registered charity.

We have a range of unique locations that are available during office hours. These include an atmospheric 1950s living room on Ravensworth Terrace which is ideal for small groups of up to six; through to our stunning Bank Board Room overlooking the iconic 1900s Town Street that can accommodate larger groups of up to 50, with optional use of the ancillary Museum Room as a lunch space.

The museum is set in a site of 400 acres, and there’s so much for your guests to enjoy and explore. We have catering options to suit all budgets, prepared by our in-house team and served by staff in period costume.

We’re perfect for away days, thank you events and meetings of up to 50 people. Our Partnerships Team will tailor the event to your requirements, and you can add in some memorable Beamish magic with an additional activity – a tour of site, a Victorian school lesson, the 1900s murder mystery, 1950s mini golf and fairground rides.

“Very pleased to have been able to hold our Norton Rose Fulbright Team Away Day at Beamish Museum. A massive thank you to the team at Beamish who ensured we had everything we needed to make the day run smoothly – highly recommend giving them a shout if you are considering where to host your next corporate event!”  Norton Rose Fulbright – September 2022

 “Team Christmas Party 2022 – This year at Just R we opted out of the standard party night and instead took ourselves off to the olden days at Beamish Museum. Any teams looking for something out of the ordinary, I absolutely recommend something similar!” – Rachael Bagshaw, CEO Just R- December 2022
