Derbyshire tram museum to host new Signals Festival

Crich Tramway Museum will host new Signals Festival, a one-day event to be headlined by The Charlatans.

Taking place in Derbyshire on June 11, Signals Festival is billed as a family-friendly festival and is set to celebrate “music of the future in a world of the past”.

Gareth Murfin and Anthony Clements, Signals’ festival directors, said of the launch: “We’ve been planning this for three years now and the result is something really unique that we’re proud of. Where else can you get a vintage tram ride across the festival site?! Now we just can’t wait for everyone to come and enjoy what we’ve been planning.

“We fell in love with this charming venue as soon as we saw it, so to be able to programme some of our favourite established artists, alongside some incredible emerging talent that we’ve unearthed locally in the regions, is something very special for us.

“Expect a beautiful and relaxed setting, where you can take time to explore the Victorian village, before hopping on a tram up to the music stages.”
