What's new at Beamish Museum 3 - the band practice hall
My 3rd report on what's new at Beamish Museum is about the Hetton Silver Band practice hall. The building was donated to Beamish and was dismantled brick by brick and transported to its new site as part of the pit village. Yet again, I was away for the official opening. When I was there last month, an ice rink had been set up next to it and the hall was being used as a place to store boots and shoes and skates.
