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.
If you want to know more about how Well Dressings are made, visit our ‘How to’ page. To see some examples of Well Dressings have a look at our Gallery pages. Photos of previous years Well Dressings can be found by visiting the welldressing.com website.
The EWDA Committee meetings are now held every 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Blenheim House apart fro August & December. Anyone interested would be most welcome.
Etwall Well Dressing Festival, due on 15 & 16th May, unfortunately, has been cancelled for the 2nd year due to the current Government Corona Virus Restrictions, Guidelines and Lockdown and to 'Stay Safe & Stay at Home'.
We hope to be able to hold our Festival in 2022 on 21 & 22nd May and to welcome our visitors back for a great Festival comeback
