2019 will be the final year of Copeland Pass free access to the Beacon Museum. We have enjoyed welcoming thousands of new members over the past three years, however we feel now is a time to look at different mechanisms for people to visit that help us build sustainably for the future.

Free access for current pass holders will recommence from Tuesday 1 October and will continue for all members until Tuesday 31 December 2019. After this point, only members with existing memberships that run into 2020 will have free access until their current pass expires. All passes will be deemed expired after Saturday 1 June 2020.

New Copeland Pass memberships can still be taken out, and they will automatically expire on Tuesday 31 December 2019

Our Annual Pass and standard admission mechanisms will not be affected by this change, although we reserve the right to alter these processes at any time.

 Resident’s of Copeland can currently enter the core museum for free with the Copeland Pass. This does not include access to the feature exhibitions running intermittently throughout the year, where admission rates apply.

To claim your pass you must be a permanent resident of the Borough of Copeland. Please bring a current utility or bank statement with you name, address and postcode on it to the museum admission desk and we will process your application.

For a young person aged 16-18 years, if you don’t have any of the above, please bring a letter from your school with your name, address and postcode on.

Each resident of any address must complete a separate application form.
One child under 16 years gains free entry with one adult who has an up-to-date Copeland Resident’s Pass.

After you receive your pass, just show it every time you visit the museum (outside of feature exhibition periods) with proof of signature.
This card may not be used by any other person.
The Copeland Resident’s Pass is valid until 31 December 2019 (if a new member) or until the written expiry date on your pass (existing members). All passed will be invalidated on 1 June 2020.
