The village is themed this Easter for the 1940s era on April 16 and 17.

Vintage trams from the era will be running and visitors 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. Historic wartime road and military vehicles will be on show and on the move.

Children can take part in activities around the site including an Easter egg hunt. They will also be able to take part in the Crich “Boot Camp” and the evacuee scenarios.
