Blast from the past- Beamish package & Agricultural show!

From Thursday 17th to Sunday 20th September 2015, Beamish open air museum is host to the annual Agricultural Show, a fun filled day recreating a traditional country show from the early 1900s!

This show is a real blast from the past and is part of a larger month long festival of Agriculture, which celebrates the rural heritage of the North East of England. The museum itself is situated in County Durham’s beautiful countryside; with 300 acres of natural landscape surrounding it, there’s plenty to admire!

The day promises to be informative and entertaining, with visitors being able to participate in a whole host of wacky activities including tomahawk throwing and archery. If you fancy taking a back seat, there’s plenty of interesting demonstrations on- you can visit the craft tent and watch the experts at work or enjoy a traditional sheep dog display. Afterwards, why not head to the beer tent for a taste of real ale whilst listening to the very impressive big brass band. Phew! We’re tired already.
