As we’re firmly in spring now and the weather is starting to realise that attention is being turned to those longer days and just what can keep the family entertained. The Crich Tramway Village are on hand to help as they have a number of events coming up during May, sure to keep people entertained.
On Sunday 30th April and Monday 1st May it will be Magical May with a fairy trail taking place and the chance to meet the Fairy Queen. There is also the chance to build fairy dens and take part in a wizarding school. On Bank Holiday Monday 1st May there will be Maypole dancing as well as Morris Men dancing.
The next bank holiday comes quickly after that and between Saturday 6th and Monday 8th May children will be able to make their own crowns and waving flags to help celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.
On Sunday 21st May there will be a new event as the “Barking Mad” dog show (run in conjunction with Just for Dogs of Ashbourne) will be happening. There will be a small fee to enter your dogs into the competition with this going to charity.
Candi Bell, Crich’s Events Manager, said: “As a dog friendly attraction, we are delighted to be holding this new dog show event in conjunction with Just for Dogs. The dogs will also be able to ride on our vintage trams and enjoy the day with their owners”.
The month ends (and June starts!) with the return of Seaside Fun from Saturday 27th May until Friday 2nd June. There will be Punch and Judy, bingo, craft making, a mini beach and fun fair to keep all of the family entertained. Saturday 27th to Monday 29th May will also see a Flea Circus.
Of course, at all of these events there will be a tram service in operation along the line between Town End and Glory Mine.
