Here's a few photographs from our grand parade today. The uniformed organisations did a fantastic job, waving their flags for the visitors who lined the streets. Well done to everyone who took part!

It's a beautiful Sunday Morning and we're all geared up for the second day of our Empire and Flag weekend. There's plenty to see and do, from learning traditional Scouting skills to learning to drill with the Home Guard.

Mmmmm, fresh cinder toffee! We’re soooo tempted to lick the spoon but our confectioner tells us that cinder toffee comes out of the pan when it reaches 136 degrees.... so best not! #beamish #beamishmuseum #food #foodie

Cheers to the Bank Holiday weekend! To mark the occasion we have a delicious guest beer available at our traditional Sun Inn Pub. Pagan Queen. From the Firebrick Brewery in Blaydon (15 minutes away from Beamish). It’s an all British blonde beer. Clean, crisp, slightly fruity and very refreshing 👌#Beamish #beamishmuseum #beer #bankholiday #brewery

Have you heard about JiggleBeamers, our fantastic session for families with pre-school children?
The sessions, which run every Thursday, have a period feel (with no plastics or batteries) and are a chance for children to make new friends and have fun learning.
Find out more on our website: www.beamish.org.uk/whats-on/jigglebeamers/.
