As Crich Tramway Village re-opens in March, see its packed calendar of fun events for all the family throughout the 2024 season. See our taster of what’s on when.

Who doesn’t love a nostalgic ride on a vintage tram – and now there are more reasons than ever to visit Crich Tramway Village for the 2024 season.

Just pick your favourite from their wide range of events to suit all tastes and styles. For children, there’s their first ever Easter trail, as well as Dinosaur Day and a Teddy Bears Picnic. Or the rest of the family will be swinging to the Sounds of the 50s and 60s, or getting involved with the Crime at Crich murder mystery day.

During the 60th anniversary year of electric trams, there’s even a special weekend when most of their operational trams will all be running.

Step into the past

There’ll be a tram running past you soon in the recreated period street, where most of the rescued buildings from around the UK have been pieced back together, brick by brick. Visit the Red Lion pub and Derby Assembly Rooms – there’s even the Bundy Clock, which was rescued from West Bromwich.

Hop on board to ride along the mile-long track, with stops at Wakebridge for the mining display, Cabmen’s shelter, Woodland Walk and Glory Mine.

Visit the Century of Trams exhibition in the Great Exhibition Hall, and the Stephenson Discovery Centre. Then see the view from the Workshop Viewing Gallery. On the Woodland Walk & Sculpture Trail, step into fun shelters and tunnels, and enjoy the outdoor games.

Dogs on a lead are also welcome and you can even take them on the lower deck of the trams.
