Beamish Golden Ticket Competition

March 16th 2021

Beamish has launched its biggest ever competition, with winners receiving an exclusive VIP visit to the museum.

The Beamish Golden Ticket competition will see five Golden Tickets shared out between five Jubilee Confectioners sweet shop tins and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is purchase a tin (or two!) of Beamish sweets from the online shop.

The can’t-be-bought prize includes entry into the museum before normal opening hours for you and three others, an exclusive sweet shop demonstration where you can invent your very own sweet, deciding the flavour, shape and colour of the sweets that are made, you will also get a bag of your confectionery creation, and a private tour around the museum in the Armstrong Whitworth car.

Plus, you’ll be treated to a delicious afternoon tea in one of our historic exhibits, a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s stores and other surprises throughout your day. You’ll also get a bag of Beamish goodies!

Matthew Henderson, Product Development Manager at Beamish, said: “We’re so excited to launch the Beamish Golden Ticket competition. This is biggest competition the museum has ever run and we can’t wait to see who finds those Golden Tickets.

“With the chance to decide what sweets are made in the sweet shop on the day of their visit, a delicious afternoon tea, a private tour around the museum in the Armstrong Whitworth car, and much more, this really is a very special prize – the ultimate Beamish experience.

“After a really difficult year, we’re really excited to give five people and their friends and families something to really look forward to. It’s also a great way to continue to show support for the museum – something which we are so incredibly grateful for. Good luck everyone!”

The Beamish Golden Ticket competition runs from midday on 16th March to midnight on 1st April 2021. Lucky finders are being encouraged to contact the museum as soon as they find one of the sought-after tickets, so best be quick!

Please note, the prize can only be offered once government COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. If you are lucky enough to find a Beamish Golden Ticket in your tin of Jubilee Confectioners sweets, this must be redeemed within 48 hours of finding it. For full terms and conditions please visit
