The next big event at the Crich Tramway Village will be Beer and Bands on Sunday 6th and Monday 7th May and hopefully this time the weather will play a lot fairer following the cancellation of half of the Easter 1940s event! Music and local cask ales will combine to make for a great Bank Holiday in the Derbyshire countryside.
As well as a tram service running for a mile between Town End and Glory Mine the two day event will see confirmed bands including Belper Town Wind Band, Newmount Brass, Stunt Double, Sensible Shoes, Box O’ Frogs, New Mills Band, Crich Brass, Herding Catz, Hag Farm Conspiracy and Andy Martin and Friends covering many different genres of music for all the family.
There will also be local cask ales, wines, ciders and bottled beers in The Red Lion whilst Rita’s Tearooms will have a range of locally sourced pies and delicious cakes.
With trams running until 5pm on both days The Red Lion will remain open until 11pm on the Sunday, subject to demand.
