WW2 Home Front / 1940s Event

8th August to 14th August

You may need your tin hat and gas mask if you visit Crich Tramway Village during its special August 1940s Week from Monday 8th to Sunday 14th August.

From Monday, the museum will be turning back to a period where Britain was at war. Historic wartime road and military vehicles will be on show and on the move, mingling with a range of vintage trams, which visitors will be able to ride on as often as they like. There will also be a Spitfire on display outside the Assembly Rooms.

Rita’s Tearoom will be serving wartime fayre and the Red Lion public house will be serving drinks while visitors can join in with traditional pub games.

From Monday to Friday, wartime songs will be belted out by Jayne Darling. Over the weekend, entertainment will move to Victoria Park with songs from popular entertainers.

Plus, dress up in 1940s clothes and we offer a reduced admission charge.

Please note that free return admission tickets are not valid for Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th August.

A dance will be held on Saturday evening.  Tickets at £5 per person are limited and can be pre-booked by calling us and checking availability.
