Warslow & Elkstones Action Group Presents
Warslow Beer Festival
Saturday 2nd July 2016
FREE ENTRY 12 NOON - 12 MIDNIGHT
This year, once again, we have something for all the family, including children's entertainment, live bands, vintage rally, a fell race, fabulous food from the Peak District and of course, a wonderful array of over 25 real ales and ciders.
The Copy Catz are now a regular feature of the Warslow Beer Festival and we're pleased to welcome them back for 2016.
Playing a brilliant mixture of songs, old and new, their distinctive, easy-going style lends itself to a lazy afternoon in the sun, supping a pint of fine ale or a glass of Pimms.
Warslow Silver Band
Our very own Warslow Silver Band are back again this year with their lively mix of band standards and intriguing surprises.
Traditionally, the Silver Band open up our entertainments with a couple of performances starting at around 1pm.
Always popular with kids and adults alike.
After barnstorming performances over the last couple of years, we just had to have them back.
There's no better way to finish off the event than moving and grooving to that Funk Station sound!
Beer & Food
Enjoy over 20 real ales and ciders from a wide range of breweries. Previous years have seen excellent ales from Thornbridge Brewery, Hartington Brewery, Whim Ales, Leatherbritches, Peak Ales, Falstaff Brewery and many more...

The Beer Festival was originally set up as a beer and food festival and the tradition of having excellent things to eat throughout the day continues.
Proceeds of food sales go towards good causes and next year's festival.

The now legendary vegetable chilli served with fresh bread and butter.
We never seem to have enough of these amazing vegetable samosas made by hand in Normanton, Derby.
Produced and donated by villagers and locals, there's a wide array of cup cakes, sliced cakes, brownies, etc.

A popular attraction every year in the field opposite Warslow Village Hall.
Get up close and personal to an array of machinery from classic cars to tractors and steam engines.
If you have a vintage or classic vehicle, no matter how pristine or tatty, please bring it along - the more the merrier!
Free camping is available for Beer Festival guests on SATURDAY NIGHT ONLY.
The campsite is opposite the Village Hall and will be well sign-posted.
There are no facilities on the field but the public toilets in the Village Hall are open all night.
Please be careful when crossing the road at night, especially with children - it is a 30mph zone but no-one seems to stick to the limit...
Space is available on a first come, first served basis.
If you would like to camp on Friday or over the whole weekend, please contact Hulme End Campsite which is only about a mile away.
