Crich Tramway Village, home to the National Tramway Museum, will be offering free admission to residents living within five miles of Crich on their Community Day.
The Community day will take place on Sunday, October 11, and residents will need proof of living within five miles of Crich by producing a driving licence, utility bill or similar on admission.
The tickets available will be for up to two adults and three children from the same household.
In support of the community exhibition at The Glebe in Crich, there will be a small exhibition in the Learning Centre of creative projects which were undertaken by staff and volunteers at the museum during lockdown.
Crich Tramway Village is also opening for an additional weekend on November 7/8, from 10am to 5.30pm with normal admission prices.
Crich Tramway COVID-secure
Marketing & Business Development Manager, Amanda Blair, said: “We would normally end the season on Sunday 1 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 measures will be in place and members of the public will need to book a timed ticket for tram rides on arrival. There are no tram stops on the journey, to help ensure the safety of passengers, volunteers, and staff.

In line with other venues, the indoor soft play area will remain closed and the numbers in indoor areas such as the shops and on the trams will be limited. Card and contactless payments are preferred, and full-priced tickets can be purchased online.
For those who prefer not to take tram rides, special day rates without tram rides are available, and these are payable on arrival.
