VISITORS to Beamish Museum, near Chester-le-Street, can experience all the fun of the Georgian Fair this weekend

People can consult the quack doctor, marvel at the fire eater and magician, be entertained by the flea circus and meet a travelling showman.

They can also see the alpacas, falcons and ferrets, and turn detective to help the parish constable investigate Joe the Quilter’s murder.

The 16th Light Dragoons and the Durham 68th Regiment of Foot will be setting up camp on Saturday and Sunday.

Paul Foster, Historic Events Officer, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to enjoy our fantastic Georgian Fair at Beamish.

“Come and enjoy the hustle and bustle of this traditional event. You could even be recruited at the Squire of Pockerley’s hiring fair.”
