Beamish Museum Easter holidays activities for all the family to enjoy

Beamish Museum Easter holidays activities for all the family to enjoy
Gordon Barr 13 April 2017


Pockerley Hall at Beamish

Beamish Museum has lots of egg-citing activities going on over the holidays including inviting visitors to find out how Easter was celebrated in the 1800s, 1900s and 1940s.

Children can take part in an Easter egg trail to track down all the eggs the Easter Bunny has left around the museum. Those with an eagle-eye who spots them all can claim a traditionally printed certificate from the print shop in The Town.

Herron’s Bakery nearby will be selling hot cross bun and simnel cake too while traditional Easter baking will take place across the museum.

Creative youngsters can be kept occupied by making an Easter card in The Pit Village school on Saturday or an Easter bonnet on the Easter Sunday or Monday. If you don’t know what ‘jarp and roll’ means then head along to Pockerley Old Hall to find out from the Georgian folk who will be dyeing eggs for the purpose.

Easter Sunday treats also include a visit to the dentist in The Town (yes, really) where there will be egg-decorating opportunities in the waiting room and on Easter Monday there will be egg-rolling in The Town park at 11am, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.

Albert Sayers, Newcastle's well-known street trader, says farewell to his pride and joy

Albert Sayers, Newcastle's well-known street trader, says farewell to his pride and joy
David Morton 14 June 2016

If the Sayers family is one of the most well-known on Tyneside, Albert Sayers is perhaps one of Newcastle’s most recognisable faces.

For decades the street trader has plied his trade in the city centre, selling fruit and vegetables to countless thousands of customers. But now it’s the end of an era for Albert as his distinctive street barrow has been retired and donated to Beamish Museum in County Durham.

The 70-year-old said: “As a family we’ve been selling in Newcastle for six generations now. The barrow is part of the family and has been admired by all - what with its hand carvings and gold leaves, it’s really so beautiful. t has been well-viewed over the years and now it’s with Beamish Museum, for which we must thank Steve Wraith for helping arrange.” He added: “People are now asking where the barrow is. I had a lady come up to me recently whose family are from Australia, and were here last year taking photos, asking where it had gone.”

Some sections of the colourful barrow can be traced back over eight decades. In fact, the wording on Albert’s barrow proudly declares how his family began trading on the streets of Newcastle back in 1884.

Although Albert and the family continue to trade, the barrow will certainly be a miss. He said: “We’ve seen family members imprisoned fighting for legalisation. It’s been through good and bad weather as well, so I’m really pleased it’s now somewhere like Beamish Museum. The barrow and its history is something worth sharing and is certainly a part of what we had to do to earn a living. It was a tourist attraction and a talking point - and now it’s the first of its kind in a museum, certainly in this region at least.”

And yes, Albert is intending to visit his pride and joy down at Beamish from time to time...

Step back in time to World War II in Beamish's 2017 Dig for Victory event

Step back in time to World War II in Beamish's 2017 Dig for Victory event

Dig for Victory at Beamish Museum until Sunday September, 3 (Image: Beamish Museum)

The first event in Beamish Museum’s 2017 Great North Festival of Agriculture is running from today until Sunday.

Dig for Victory, set in and around The 1940s Farm, tells the story of life on the Home Front and the vital support role the British countryside played during the Second World War. The Farm will be a hive of activity – from Land Girls to Lumberjills and 1940s beauty tips to hands-on activities for everyone to try.

Visitors can take part in Home Guard drills, meet soldiers and farm workers and have a photograph taken in The Farm office to attach to their ‘official’ ID card. Around the farmstead there are 1940s vehicles and agricultural machinery, a blacksmith hard at work in the forge, and the chance to find out about ferret rearing. The farmhouse kitchen will be buzzing - visitors can join the Jam Drive, sample wartime cooking or master the art of Make Do & Mend. In Garden Cottage, there’ll be wartime hair and beauty tips and next door, in Orchard Cottage, youngsters can help to make patriotic bunting.

Paul Foster, Historic Events Officer at Beamish, said: “We’re really looking forward to Dig for Victory. This is an opportunity for us to give a taster of life on the Home Front, to show what a difference ordinary folk could make and just how much they could support the war effort in their own back gardens.”

Work begins on £18m new attractions at Beamish Museum: Here's what's coming and when you can see it

Work begins on £18m new attractions at Beamish Museum: Here's what's coming and when you can see it
By Hannah Graham 22 September 2017


The first steps were taken in creating a new 1950s town at Beamish Museum today where the ground was broken on the new £18m project, the largest of its kind in the museum's 47 year history

Work has begun on Beamish Museum’s £18m expansion - and it won’t be long before visitors can see the first of the new attractions.

Set to finish around 2021, the ‘remaking Beamish’ project will add a 1950s town and farm, as well as Georgian cottage and coach house, to the open-air museum ... with the first of the buildings opening next year.

Breaking ground on the new project on Friday, museum director Richard Evans said he was excited to see work begin on the biggest project in Beamish’s history. “It’s great to be starting - it’s the result of a lot of hard work from right across the museum, and outside,” A lot of the money is coming from heritage lottery funding, so hopefully people will be pleased really pleased to see that money for good causes being spent here in the North East.”

The development will eventually bring 30 buildings to the site. Some will be replicas of structures from across the region, while others will be moved piece by piece and recreated in the museum. Spain’s Field Farm, which will be moved from its current location in Weardale, will tell the story of agricultural life in the region and the technological changes which affected it in the 50s. Below the farm will lie a full 1950s town, featuring a community centre, homes, shops, a cafe, a bowling green and a fish and chip shop. One of the major new draws will be a 500 seat cinema, the Grand Electric, from Ryhope. During the day, short films and newsreel will be shown, but the museum could be opened up at night for full feature showings.

The first of the new exhibits to be open to visitors will be ‘Joe the quilter’s cottage’, a traditional heather-thatched cottage from Northumberland, which will open next year. Over the next three to four years, museum bosses say history-lovers will be able to gradually visit all the new buildings as they open.
