Crich Tramway Village has opened for its 2014 Season.

Visitors can attend the popular venue daily and there is a bumper year lined up to celebrate 50 years of running electric trams at Crich.

A new temporary exhibition The making of Crich will be opened next to the Survive and Thrive the Electric Era exhibition in the Derby Assembly Rooms later in the year.

The exhibition will display pictures of the sites gradual development and will hopefully answer that common question Why is there a Tram Museum in Crich?

The children’s indoor soft play area has been refurbished with an exciting new design and visitors will finally be able to alight the tram at Glory Mine and walk up to Crich Memorial Stand, or enjoy the breathtaking views.

New for 2014, the experienced guides are offering daily tours so visitors will be able to find out even more about the site, its history, restorations projects and the trams.

This year, the annual events have had a major shake-up. There are some exciting new events such as the Best of Sheffield, which will celebrate all things Sheffield and see the launch of Sheffield 510 back in to service.

Some of the popular events have been extended to run for a whole week such as Beside the Seaside and Starlight Specials. There are also the regular themed favourites such as the Edwardian and 1940s events.

Don’t forget, visitors still get 12 months free entry with all full price tickets so there is even more reason to make a return to Crich.

Crich Tramway Village is open daily until November 2. Admission prices are Adult £13.00. Senior £10.50. Child (4-15) £.8.00. Family (two adults, three children) £35. Call the information line on 01773 854321
