Jude visits Beamish

18 February 2015

Beamish is a vital asset to the North East's economy.

At Beamish the team and I met Richard, the Director. It employs 375 people and has 430 volunteers, it offers training opportunities and career paths to all. Last year Beamish had an incredible 650,000 visitors. We also discussed how attractions like Beamish can access European funds. Extra money would help them grow in size and therefore employ and train more people. Then it was off to Durham where we stopped at the fantastic Durham Miner's Hall to look at the banners - can't wait for the Durham Miners Gala. 

Do you think the North East needs its own voice in the EU exit negotiations?
