Crich Tramway Museum hosts The Great War - Home Front week

What was life like in the build-up to the First World War?

Visitors to Crich Tramway Museum will be able to find out over the week ahead.

The Great War - Home Front event, which runs from July 13 to 19 looks at the period just before the war (mid-week), the outbreak of war and war itself (weekend).

Re-enactors, exhibitors, lectures and educational sessions, as well as tram cars from the period, will explore the impact that the war had socially and the part that the trams played.

On Wednesday, July 15, an 1874 horse-drawn tram will be in services for visitors to ride on from 11am to 4pm. This tram will also be in operation, alongside electric trams, on August 18 and 20 and September 16.
