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.

Group Visits

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 organise 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, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), social issues, public health and Victorian studies.   See our education pages for more details.
