Head back to 40s at Crich event

Step back in time to 1940s Britain at Crich Tramway Village this weekend.

Visitors are invited to the Easter 1940s Event where they can expect air-raid warnings and the sound of low flying aircraft. You will need your identity card for a real taste of life during the Second World War.

Policemen and members of the Home Guard will be patrolling the period streets and visitors must always be ready to show their identity card or risk being arrested as a spy! Children will be able to take part in the Crich ‘Boot Camp’ and the evacuee scenarios.

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.

Wartime songs will be belted out by an authentic concert party throughout the weekend with Marina Mae, Kevin Mac, George Formby and traditional dancing, plus performances by Masquerade.

The Red Lion public house will be serving drinks and wartime styled meals and if you dress up in 1940s clothes the venue will offer a reduced admission charge.
