BEAMISH Museum is offering visitors a taste for Easter through the ages this weekend.

Easter themed activities will include egg-painting and jarping - also known as egg tapping - making bonnets and an egg rolling competition.

Matthew Henderson, engagement and participation team assistant, said: “We’ve got loads planned for the whole family during the Easter holidays with a chance to learn about how Easter was celebrated during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s.”
