Festival of 50s at Beamish Museum

About

Dance the day away to live music, treat yourself to a 50s hairdo or simply enjoy a milkshake in the sun at the Festival of 50s this summer at Beamish.

Hop aboard the fabulous 50s bus at the museum and be transported to the days of rock ‘n’ roll and teddy boys, Pathé News and petticoats from 12 - 15 July 2018.

What’s more, as with all daytime events, there is no extra charge for the Festival of 50s. Daytime admission is included in the regular museum entry charge and it’s free for Unlimited Pass holders.

Beamish has plans to build a 1950s Town and upland farm, a Georgian coaching inn and other developments as part of the Remaking Beamish project courtesy of a £10.9million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

The 1950s Town is set to include houses, shops, police house, cafe, cinema and recreation area. Aged Miners’ Homes will be a centre for people living with dementia and their families and carers. A 1950s trolleybus system and restored buses will transport visitors.
