When I was asked to do book signings at Crich Tramway Village, I jumped at the chance to visit such a special place, full of history. Crich houses the national collection of trams, lovingly restored and maintained by a core group of dedicated engineers. One entrance fee gives you free access to the village all year, with any number of free tram rides. No wonder it’s a popular venue for visitors. On the mile long site, there’s lots to do and see, and plenty of child-friendly activities. I loved meeting lots of new readers, chatting about history, writing and reading. James’s mum was kind enough to take this picture for me, when James came to buy his book.
The Starlight Event was during Hallowe’en week, with a reduced entrance fee for anyone who came in fancy dress. There were so many witches, skeletons and ghouls in one place. Dr Who and his friends were there too! Thank you Crich for inviting me to such a fab event! Hope to see you and your amazing trams again, before long.
