The Three Valleys Beer Festival, according to the Campaign for Real Ale's website, features "a whole raft of pubs, clubs and breweries putting on small beer festivals" in Dronfield.

Little Britain was shown on the BBC from 2003 to 2007.

It featured a variety of bizarre and often rude characters which were supposed to represent different parts of modern Britain.

The show was written and performed by David Walliams, who also went on to write children's books, and Matt Lucas.
