This year we celebrate our 11th annual Elton Beer Festival and we hope you will come and join us!
Elton Beer Festival offers a great day out for revellers with wide selection of local real ales, food and live music to suit all tastes. Located on Elton’s Jubilee Sports and Recreation Field, our beer festival is suitably located for revellers to relax, camp and (hopefully) enjoy a drink in the sunshine. The large outdoor recreational grounds and play area provide an ideal space for children to play safely and let off steam.
Please note that Elton Jubilee Field Committee might change some details prior to the event. So, please check back for any alterations.

About the Elton Echo
The ‘Elton Echo’ is the Parish quarterly newsletter. It contains news, information and notices relating to Elton and neighbouring Gratton.
Village residents, clubs and organisations are invited to publish their news, views, stories and diary events in the newsletter.
The Elton Echo is also available for advertising businesses and items for sale. It is delivered free of charge to all households in Elton and Gratton.
Elections will take place in Elton and Gratton will take place on Thursday 7 May 2015. Residents of Elton and Gratton can cast their vote at Elton Village Hall between 7am and 10pm.
The ballot in Elton and Gratton will take place to elect your Member of Parliament (MP) only.
Normally you would also be electing your representatives for the Parish Council and voting for your District Councillor. This year, however, there will be no elections for either.
The Parish Council has 6 seats, but with only 4 people put their names forward there will be no election. The 4 candidates will be automatically elected to serve on the Parish Council.
The four people elected unopposed to Elton Parish Council are John Moseley, Cath Dawe, Nigel Mason and Colin Swindell.
There will also be no ballot to elect your representative for Derbyshire Dales District Council. Colin Swindell was the only candidate to put his name forward for the seat and has, therefore, been re-elected unopposed to serve for a further 4 years. Colin will serve as an Independent Candidate.
As the Parish Council is short of 2 members, candidates are being sought to fill the vacant seats.
