The main event of the villages traditional annual feast week was attended by about 2,000 people on Saturday (July 12), where children rode the donkeys and adults drove them in a trap to win prizes including a rosette, wine or a box of chocolates. Other attractions included an aerobatic air display from pilot Mark Jefferies, fete stalls, a market tent, First World War re-enactments, a raffle and a whole ox roast. In the evening, there was live rock music. On Sunday there was a concert organised by Eltisley History Society which launched its book Remembering Eltisleys Fallen, 1914-1918 at the fete in St Pandionia and St John the Baptist Church to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War. Jim Booth, a member of the organising committee, said: Everyone that came said they had a fantastic time. It was bigger and better than last year and raised money for the community.
