A music festival set to take place at Crich Tramway Village has been cancelled due to the partial closure of the attraction.

Signals Festival had been due to take place on Saturday (June 11). All ticket holders will receive a full refund.

Parts of Crich Tramway Village remain closed, including the Tram Depots and indoor play area, following safety concerns identified last month. Trams are also not operating at the moment.

Organisers of Signals Festival said: “Access to the entire site and full Crich Tramway Village is integral to our Signals Festival offer, and we do not want to deliver a sub-standard event that doesn’t meet expectations.

“We are deeply sorry for the disappointment caused to all those who planned to attend or have been involved in the festival and for any disruption caused to your plans.

“Signals Festival was postpone a year due to Covid-19, and as a small festival, it is unfortunately not viable for us to do this a second time around.

“All ticket holders will be contacted by their ticket agent and issued a full refund. Thank you for your support and understanding at this time.”

Dr Mike Galer, general manager of Crich Tramway Village, added: “We take safety very seriously at the museum and we have opened the areas which are no longer under a safety restriction to visitors.

“Since we cannot operate our trams and still have some areas closed, we are offering a discounted day entry price for adults and offering free admission to children. Those visitors wishing to purchase free return tickets may still do so at our standard prices, so that they can return when all areas are fully accessible again.

“We are sorry that Signals Music Festival will not now go ahead this year, and we hope that this will be rescheduled for the future.”
