Hi all. The dates for Crich 2009 are Sun/Mon, 12th/13th April. The revised booking forms will be going out within the next couple of weeks.

If you haven't brought a display before but would like to, contact myself(Tracey Gregory) or Gillian & Malcolm Davies @tramway.co.uk.
We have more area available to put displays and would be glad to hear of any new ideas or sugestions you may have, but definitely NO GERMANS!! Sorry folks but Crich has to remain a Home Front Event due to Museum policy.

If you book in, it will cost you the princely some of £5 for the weekend.
If you are part of one of the groups putting on a display or helping out with booking in etc, it won't cost you, but if you turn up on the day as a visitor (in costume), it will cost you £8.00 per day.
If you intend to book, please do so early as camping spaces are limited and capped.

Hello! We were only talking about this on our way down to Kent this weekend...

Looking forward to it, no snow please this year and no flu thanks! :lol:

:lol Is the Cliff Inn still open? We didn't know if the landlady was selling up?

Think Gary B is your contact for our gang, but look forward to it.

Hi Tracey, Gillian & Malcolm,

I found this forum after a remark in the most recent issue of "The Journal" (That's the Crich Tramway Museum Magazine, for those who did not know).

Now here is my question: Am I correct in assuming that Germans acting as British will still be allowed on site? Kerstin and I intend to be at Crich for the Easter weekend and the week after, driving and conducting trams as usual, but WE ARE GERMANS. We'll try to wear our British style tramway uniforms, though, not the German ones which really look at bit, well, German.

And yes, I am winding you up a bit. Sorry for diluting this important subject.

See you all in April, I hope.

Kind regards

Christoph

What the chaps are refering to is Axis uniforms.

If you come from Germany then fare doos nice to see you. :D
BUT If you wear an Axis uniform then thats a No No as far as the organisers are concerned.

Hope that answers your question.

Hi Soldier A,

just to clarify the issue, we are volunteer tram drivers and conductors of the Tramway Museum Society. There is no way that we will wear axis military uniforms and we will try to avoid our German tram driver uniforms as well. I was just trying to pull Tracey's leg because of that remark "NO GERMANS" which can be misunderstood in the context. :wink:

(On a more serious side, this is only our second 40s event at Crich and I still fear that the odd visitor or even re-enactor will misinterpret the fact that between the two of us we talk in German.)

Kind regards

Christoph

The Cliff Inn is still under the careful hand of Mrs Martin, but the establishment is now a FREE HOUSE so shes mainly stocking locally brewed micro brewery ales and some cracking ones there are too. Food is good, as usual and so are my pickles!
Don't forget about the RED LION on site where the same locally brewed ales are available, and they are cheaper!!
Will be in touch with Gary shortly

Only one problem with the Red lion, it doesn't stay open late enough!

Cheers Tracy.

might be possible to extend the hours of the Red Lion if the museum apply for a temporary extention to their license....Amber Valley Council are usually not too bad if you are nice to them :lol: :lol:

My only suggestion is that after accidently getting locked in last year I discovered that there was no real way of contacting staff in case of emergency or the gates needing opening. Might be worth an emergency contact number being given to all those who stay on site over the weekend.

To avoid being arrested as spies one of the first things the Abwehr recommended was to speak English at all times :D

Best wishes!
Matt
