Beam is an arts, architecture and learning centre and is dedicated to the imaginative understanding and improvement of the public realm – our urban and rural streets, buildings, parks, housing estates and public spaces. Beam Education Beam has many years experience of working with children & young people helping them to gain a better understanding of the public realm through creative processes. Beam Gallery The public realm has a unique visual language. Equipping people with greater insight into how this language works is at the heart of Beam Gallery's changing exhibition programme. Beam's Heritage Beam is based in a grade II* listed Orangery set in beautiful grounds which include listed trees, historic monuments and gravestones. Work with Beam Beam can work with you to develop specific projects linking to the curriculum, visit the Gallery and encourage people of all ages to understand and enjoy architecture, the built environment and creativity or provide an opportunity for your group to explore the Orangery's heritage.
