Museum for Hire

We are delighted you are considering the “Scarborough Fair Collection” museum for your forthcoming function/event and we will endeavour to fulfill all your requirements on the day.

Graham Atkinson has built up one of the largest and finest collections of working steam Showman’s Engines, Vintage Cars, Miniature Vehicles, Fairground rides and Mechanical Organ’s in the UK and we believe the “Scarborough Fair Collection” will provide a unique setting for your Wedding Reception, birthday, anniversary, concert or corporate event.

 

Ballroom

A large  dance floor with vintage dance organs flanking the walls and the ‘Mighty’ Wurlitzer taking centre stage.

Theatre

When arranged as a theatre, the ballroom seats up to 430.  The large stage has changing room facilities, lighting and sound.

Reception

Suitable for pre-dinner drinks or drinks as your guests arrive while the baby grand piano plays quietly in the corner. The outside courtyard is perfect for a hog-roast, vintage ice-cream van or perhaps just seating to enjoy a warm summer evening.

Catering

We have a fully stocked bar and can help arrange catering from afternoon tea to a banquet or perhaps even a hog roast.

Fair Ground Rides

Hire the rides for the first hour of your event. Take a ride on the Golden Galloping Horses, the Caterpillar, Austin Cars, Dodgems, the Ark Speedway, the Cake Walk,  the Ghost Train, Junior Gallopers and the Halstead hand turned roundabout.

Fairground Rides – They are all heritage rides and there is no guarantee that they will all be up and running, however we will endeavour to fulfil your requirements on the day. 

  • SAFETY NOTICE – USE OF FAIRGROUND RIDES IS NOT PERMITTED UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL OR DRUGS. MANAGEMENT RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ACCESS TO THE RIDES
  • SAFETY NOTICE – USE OF FAIRGROUND RIDES IS ONLY PERMITTED DURING THE FIRST HOUR OF THE MUSEUM HIRE.
