The early May Bank Holiday is just around the corner, and here at Crich Tramway Village we are planning for a relaxed and enjoyable Bank Holiday weekend.
Victoria Park and Crich Brass Band
To make it just that little bit extra special for all our visitors, there will be live music around the Museum. Our beautiful bandstand and Red Lion pub, are two of the locations in use for our visiting bands. We have the New Mills Brass Band, Box O’Frogs, Crich Brass, A Litte Jazz and Belper Wind Band all attending throughout the three days of the bank holiday weekend.
For those of you who just like to watch the world go by, or rather our trams, our Red Lion pub have got a fantastic special early May bank holiday range of beers on offer, and even better we’ve got extended opening, with the pub open until 11pm on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May.
Have a look at our special range on offer for May, and don’t forget the ones marked with an (S) mean they are seasonal specials and well worth a try.
