    12 October 2020 Crich Area Community Art Sharing success

    The weekend of 10th-11th October saw the culmination several months of artistic activity with the Crich Area Community Art Sharing exhibition at the Glebe Field Centre. This was the first event of its kind, borne from the recognition that many people engaged their creative talents as one way to occupy their time during the Covid-19 restrictions.

Crich Tramway Village will open for an hour longer from Wednesday 28th to Friday 30th October and is opening for an additional weekend on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th November 2020.

The venue will stay open until 6.30pm (last admissions 5pm) with trams running up to 6pm on the three days in October, to enable visitors to have the unique experience of riding trams in the dark.

On the additional weekend in November, the Village will be open from 10am – 5.30pm. (last admissions 4pm).

Marketing & Business Development Manager, Amanda Blair, said:

“Unfortunately we can’t run our Starlight event, which would normally include illuminations and activities, this year, but we want to give visitors the unique experience to ride on the trams in the dark, which is why we have selected 3 days in October during most schools’ half term. We recommend visitors bringing torches if they wish to take the Woodland Walk.

We would normally end the season on Sunday 1st November this year, but we have decided to offer an additional weekend, as we were closed for over three months due to Covid-19.
We’re hoping that the weather is kind, and that people will make the most of the last weekend before the winter shut down for essential maintenance.”

Covid-19 guidance measures are in place and pre-booking admissions tickets is not required, although visitors will need to book a timed ticket for tram rides on arrival. There are no tram stops on the tram journey, to help ensure social distancing and the safety of passengers, volunteers, and staff.

A Covid-19 Crich Tramway Village guidance sheet, which describes what visitors can expect, can be downloaded from the website: www.tramway.co.uk

In line with other venues, the indoor soft play area will remain closed and the numbers in indoor areas such as the shops and on the trams will be limited. Card and Contactless payments are preferred, and full-priced tickets can be purchased online at least 24 hours in advance.

For those who prefer not to take tram rides, special day rates without tram rides are available, and these are payable on arrival. For further information please visit www.tramway.co.uk or if you have a query, please email: enquiry@tramway.co.uk
