Preston Park Museum & Grounds
The Festival takes place in the beautiful Hall and Grounds at Preston Park Museum, nestled alongside the River Tees, Preston Hall, a former Georgian gentleman’s residence and once home to local industrial magnate Robert Ropner, houses a vast collection of artefacts which tell the story of Stockton-On-Tees.
We are certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to original features, the conservatory alone is an amazing space with one of the most instagrammable floors we have ever seen! Once inside the impressive spaces continue with huge fireplaces and Victorian grandeur.
The Winter Garden and the Grand Ballroom are just some of the beautiful workshop rooms we will use on the day as well as taking advantage of the outdoor spaces along the Victorian Street, Spencer Courtyard and the Walled Garden. This year sees the addition of our new wellbeing area in the Bandstand Garden which will host talks and activities as well being the perfect place to grab some lunch and relax.
Easy to get to, the Park is located just off the A66 in Stockton-on-Tees, the location on Yarm Road makes travel pretty simple with free parking on site, Eaglescliffe Train Station a 15min walk and a regular bus service just minutes away.
