Christmas Evening Beamish Museum

Join us for a magical evening of traditional festive celebrations with Beamish Christmas Evenings on 8th, 9th, 15th and 16th December 2022, from 4.30pm to 9.30pm.


Count down to the big day and unwrap the magic of Christmas past as you explore truly traditional celebrations at Beamish.

Savour scrumptious treats, enjoy Punch and Judy shows, visit the stalls in The 1900s Town to find that perfect gift and to pick up all your Edwardian essentials, and take part in Christmas crafts.

Enjoy traditional festive music, admire the beautiful decorations, have a go on the rides at The Fairground, and visit Elf Wood where Father Christmas’ little helpers have created their own elf village!

Plus, be sure to visit Father Christmas in his cosy Grotto at Rowley Station Goods Yard (small extra charge applies, pre-booking essential, subject to availability).

From the 1820s right the way through to the 1950s, there’s so much to explore and plenty of magical memories to create during Beamish Christmas Evenings.

This is a separate ticketed evening event ­– Beamish Unlimited Passes and Friends of Beamish memberships are not valid for evening events.

Christmas daytimes at Beamish will take place starting in late November – further details on visiting during Christmas daytimes will be announced soon!
