The Black Country Living Museum has announced their latest offer for businesses to experience a team away day package.

From a 1950s team away day in a historic pub to a meeting in an Edwardian committee room, Midlands businesses have been enjoying unique experiences with exclusive corporate hire from the popular Dudley attraction.

With delegate rates starting from just £55 plus VAT per person, the package includes full use of the Elephant & Castle Pub’s Lounge Room with AV facilities, unlimited refreshments throughout the day, the Museum’s famous fish and chips for lunch and an exclusive interactive session either in the Edwardian school or the underground mine.

Business development manager, Kate Kirkpatrick, said: “We’ve been proud to provide unique and historic backdrops for corporate special events and occasions for several years. Most recently we hosted a graduation ceremony for the first time.

“We’re always open to trying new things and tailoring our offer to suit each need. We’re excited to add our away days package to an already exciting offer that you simply can’t get anywhere else.”

The Museum also has several other historic spaces that are available for hire for other purposes, from a company celebration to an annual conference.

This includes the recently refurbished Museum Conference and Learning Centre, which includes an impressive space inside the translocated Rolfe Street Baths building which formerly stood in nearby Smethwick; and the replicated Elephant & Castle Pub, set in the 1950s, which was once a popular venue in Wolverhampton.

Many local businesses have already hosted their own “meeting with a difference” with Pallet Track saying: “The event went brilliantly, it ticked all the boxes we needed it to for our colleague engagement and three days on there is still a buzz in the office as the team shares photos and stories.

“The characters in the street and shops were really engaging and their knowledge was outstanding.”

As part of their latest capital development, the Museum opened an impressive purpose-built welcome centre in September 2022.

The multi-functional space has won several awards including a RIBA West Midlands Award 2024 and has several rooms available for hire, including a modern café space with facilities and the refreshing Patrick Atrium which hosts panoramic views of the historic site from its outdoor balcony.
