May Half Term, Platinum Jubilee Celebrations at Beamish Museum
Here at Beamish Museum, we’ll be hosting a full week of Platinum Jubilee Celebrations during May Half Term (28th May – 5th June 2022).
Join us for a street party at 1950s Front Street terrace. The street will be decorated with red, white and blue with Coronation-themed window displays in our 1950s businesses, and visitors will be able to watch the Coronation ceremony in the welfare hall.
During the week of celebrations there will also be performances by bands and choirs, football fun, crown making and many opportunities to join in with singing the national anthem.
The Lord Lieutenant of Durham will also visit Beamish on 27th May to open our new park and recreation ground, named Coronation Park in honour of Queen Elizabeth II. The park and recreation ground includes a play area which features traditional-style play equipment, a miniature golf course, small football pitch and giant draughts board.
Visitors need to pre-book for 10am, 11am and 12pm timeslots to help us manage the flow of visitors through our Entrance building during our busiest times, but if you are visiting from 1pm onwards, you can just turn up and won’t need to pre-book (last admission is one hour before closing time).
