Beer and Bands at Crich Event

Music and local food and drink make for a popular event and Beer and Bands at Crich Tramway Village on Sunday 5th and Monday 6th May will combine these elements for the first May Bank Holiday this year.

Confirmed bands include Belper Town Wind Band and Newmount Brass playing in the Bandstand on Sunday. The Red Lion pub will host Stunt Double with their mix of popular music followed by folk group, Box O’ Frogs.

Stunt Double consists of Jon Alex, a professional club and corporate entertainer for over 20 years, and Chris Firminger. Chris plays guitar in several bands including Firecracker, Dave Berry, Frank White, Julian Jones and Adrian Paris and his own Chris Firminger band. Chris has also recorded many backing songs for TV programme Pop Idol and has played guitar on the hit single ‘Walk like a Panther’ for Tony Christie and Jarvis Cocker.

A display of Morris dancing and clog dancing will take place near the tram terminus at Town End between 2.30pm and 3.30pm on Sunday.

On Monday, Doveholes Brass and Newmount Brass bands will occupy the Bandstand, while Silver Sax and Hag Farm Conspiracy will entertain in the Learning Centre. Andy Martin and Friends return to play the Red Lion Pub.

Event Manager, Candi Bell said: “On Monday, Maypole Movers will be here from 12.00pm to 4.00pm, offering the chance for the public to have a go at Maypole dancing, so we hope people will take the opportunity to join in traditional May Day fun”.

The Red Lion serves local cask ales, wines, ciders, gin and bottled beers, while Rita’s Tearooms has a range of locally sourced pies, delicious scones and mouth-watering cakes.

Catering Manager, Alison Isaacs, said: “Wherever possible we use local food and drink suppliers, and this event high-lights this fact. Subject to demand, The Red Lion will stay open until 11pm on Sunday, so that people can enjoy the event into the evening.”

The bands programme for the event is available on the website:
