Business Friends of Beamish

Beamish is only able to thrive thanks to the support we receive from people and businesses right across the North East region.

Be a Business Friend of Beamish
Beamish Museum is partnering with local businesses from across the North East to help secure the museum’s future and continue to boost economic growth right across the region. Your contribution will support exciting future developments, such as The 1950s Town and 1950s farm, and expansion of our 1820s Landscape.

Offering a wide range of exclusive benefits, the Business Friends of Beamish membership scheme is excellent value for money and makes a strong statement about your commitment to the region, its people and our history.

“The Business Friends of Beamish scheme offers a wide range of exclusive benefits, is excellent value for money and compliments our commitment to the region, its people and its history. With our 100th year of trading in sight, supporting the local community has never been more important to us. The scheme is an excellent way to say a little thank you to our employees whilst encouraging them to visit an excellent local museum. The feedback from our employees who have taken advantage of the free entry passes has been excellent”  – Jo Hind-Morton, Communications & Customer Care Executive, Thomas Swan.
