Tramway museum celebrates new sculptures

A weekend celebrating the installation of Conversations and Memories – sculptures commemorating the contribution of tramway families to the First World War, will take place on April 28 and 29 at Crich Tramway Village.

The permanent installation has been created by artistic duo Musson+Retallick who were winners in the 2017 International Civic Trust Awards for their Somme Memorial Artwork in Barnsley.

They have used the museum archives and community engagement to inspire the artwork, which consists of groups of abstract steel figures, standing in different locations.

During the weekend there will be sessions that allow access to parts of the museum’s collection, which inspired the artworks, not usually available to view.
