Autumn Gala Weekend
|Each October Open Weekend Tees Cottage holds its Autumn Gala Weekend. In addition to our usual attractions we invite stationary engines, traction engines, vintage vehicles and craft demonstrations to our site. If you are interested in exhibiting at our Gala please make contact via the Mail Form (see Contents list) to receive an Entry Form.|
|If you are planning to bring a large group to one of our Open Days, please let us know. Either use the Mail Form or write to the address given on the Contact Information for Tees Cottage page. If you wish, we may be able to organize for you to have a guided tour of the site. Groups can also arrange for a static opening of the site at times when we are not normally open.
Tees Cottage is suitable for School Visits, as it can make a significant contribution to the studies required in the modern school curriculum. This particularly applies to science, art and decoration, social issues, public health and Victorian studies. School visits can if desired be arranged for the Friday or Monday either side of an Open Weekend, in order for the engines to be working. Please contact us for more information regarding this.
