Discover things to do in Seaham this summer

Summer at Seaham

This year, we’re celebrating summer, Seaham-style. Al fresco dining, themed summer soirees, classic cinema nights with champagne, posh dogs and popcorn - and that's just the beginning.

Simply pick your events, buy tickets online and start preparing for what’s set to be an unforgettable summer at Seaham Hall.


Tradition with a twist

Tea on the Terrace

Join us under our heated pergola for al fresco feasting and plenty of fizz. We'll be serving up our popular afternoon tea out on our gorgeous terrace, so you can soak up the views, satisfy your sweet tooth and make most of summer Sunday afternoons. Tuck into a selection of bite size sandwiches, pastries, scones and cakes, washed down with free flowing tea and coffee, plus a glass of something fizzy. Live music, cosy blankets, fun themes and stunning surroundings will set the mood.

14th August

Celebrate National Tequila Day

School's Out: Mexican Fiesta

School's out which means the party's on - or should we say the fiesta? You're invited to the party of all parties, held on our outdoor terrace. Tequila, burritos, sombreros, a Mariachi band - you name it, we've got it. Whether you're a student, teacher or just want to celebrate the summer season, come on down to Seaham Hall for a Mexican Fiesta. When the last day of term falls so close to National Tequila Day, you know what you have to do!

We're bringing the streets of Thailand, Japan & China to our beautiful terrace so you can sample the finest flavours of the orient in one place. Sample Asian delicacies from across the globe from a range of food stalls, then sit back and enjoy live music from one of our resident DJs.
