Etwall village in Derbyshire has staged an annual Well Dressing Festival on the third weekend in May since 1970. The Well Dressing Festival attracts visitors from far and wide and is a major source of the village’s sense of identity. The well dressings are designed, produced and mounted by societies, clubs and groups of residents and celebrate a variety of themes. The event raises money for prominent local charities and contributes substantially to the local sense of community.
