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.
