The venue for DJam 2017 will be Beamish Hall, a beautiful 12th Century building that has been lovingly restored into a 21st century Country House Hotel.

Apart from three large dancing spaces (one with sprung wood floor), there are smaller rooms for taster sessions and seminars, lots of stunning period features, including ornate ceilings, chandeliers, stained glass windows and a sweeping staircase. Windows overlook the gardens to the 24-acre estate dotted with rare and exotic trees planted by the Hall's former owners.

Beamish Hall has 40 rooms (mainly doubles), its own pub with micro brewery and Beamish Wild Outdoor Adventure Park and High Ropes Course located in the grounds of the estate.

This stunning venue is in a perfect location for visitors and local dancers to enjoy the treasures that the North East of England has to offer with Beamish Museum, the largest open air museum is just on the door step, Newcastle Airport and Durham City just 20 minutes drive away.
