On Wednesday Beamish Museum visited the Enter Centre and our students participated in a heritage workshop which focused on employment in the mines, different types of jobs and regional folk song.

Our students really enjoyed the workshop and engaged in every activity with energy and commitment. It was lovely to see this type of activity taking place because The Enter Centre sits directly on top of the Dean and Chapter Colliery and was originally built by Bolchow and Vaughan as a Sunday school and then a church for the local miners.

It’s quite funny to think that over the years the building has had a myriad of uses, but it has now come full circle and is once again being used as a centre for young people to engage in arts-related initiatives.
