Festival of 50s

Beamish Museum

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

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 6th to 9th July.

Take a look at our 50s toy shop, sample the delights of macaroni cheese, help decorate the Coronation float and pop across to our 50s caravan to try on clothing from the times to see if you suit the style!

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.
