Red Oktober Day in Crich

THE award-winning Crich Tramway Village is looking forward to its annual Red Oktober Day.

On October 23, parades of Eastern Bloc vehicles such as Trabants and Wartburgs will sweep down the village’s streets. There will be a recreation of a scene from Eastern Europe prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall and Eastern European food on the menu.

A spokesman said: “Be at Crich for Red Oktober and you could - almost - believe the Cold War is still Red Hot.”
