Wedding Open Day

Wedding Open Day

3 March 2019 11am – 2pm

If you’re looking for a breath taking and inspiring venue to get married at then The Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle is the place to be this weekend.

 

With beautiful rooms, elegant grounds and a World-class collection of art all around you, The Bowes Museum is a truly unique setting for your big day.

 

John and Joséphine Bowes built the Museum to share their love of fine and decorative arts with the people of the area they loved, Barnard Castle and Teesdale.

 

Now the French château-style building holds around a dozen weddings a year and is throwing open its doors on Sunday 3 March from 11am – 2pm for a Wedding Open Day.

 

Prospective brides and grooms can visit our stunning wedding suite and meet our dedicated team.  They can also talk to local suppliers specialising in cakes, photography, flowers, bespoke stationery, transportation, catering and bridal wear.

 

The Museum is fully licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 200 people and can cater a wedding breakfast or evening reception for up to 100.

 

We can offer all or just one part of the wedding package, from the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception.  You can also hire the grounds for a marquee.

 

Lisa Hall, The Bowes Museum Wedding Coordinator, said: “It’s an honour and pleasure for us to host someone’s wedding at our magnificent venue and we understand that every wedding is unique. 

 

“We have held all sorts of weddings from traditional to quirky, formal and informal in all Seasons, nothing is too much trouble and we’ll do our best to accommodate any type of wedding.

 

“We look after the family from the very first enquiry, right through to waving them off at the end of the night.”

The Bowes Museum is looking forward to welcoming you on the 17 May


Staff have been busy behind the Museum’s closed doors getting everything ready to welcome visitors back safely.

Café Bowes has undergone a refurbishment and has a new menu waiting to be sampled, the Museum has been deep cleaned, new signage is in place reminding you to adhere to social distancing, hand sanitisation stations have been refilled, the shop has been restocked and staff are being trained ready to greet you back in a safe and timely manner.

North Country Quilts: In Celebration of New Acquisitions is now hanging in the main exhibition gallery ready to wow visitors through to January 2022 and, due to social distancing measures, entry to the display will be by a separate timed exhibition entrance ticket that needs to be booked, at no extra cost, before visiting. Song has also been reinstated in the Music Room so people can enjoy the sound of the instruments. A varied programme of activity is being planned throughout May and June which we hope you will participate in.

Entry to the Museum will be by timed slots and tickets will have to be pre-booked online here or by calling 01833 690606. The Museum will be open from 10.00 to 5.00 daily. Masks will need to be worn throughout the Museum, shop and café, except when eating or where exemptions apply.
