Well dressing is the art of decorating wells and springs, or places where wells used to stand, with natural materials to form pictures and designs as a thanksgiving for the gift of water, especially in times of drought. 8 well dressings will be on display this year. In addition there will be a variety of family entertainment on the Saturday and Sunday including: music bands, Maypole dancing, morris dancing, ferret racing, face painting, hair braiding, small funfair, puppet shows, target bowls competition, climbing wall, steam vehicle(s) and classic vehicles display. Try your hand at well dressing under expert supervision. Also, see the themed floral decoration of both village churches, visit the art exhibition by local artists and browse around over 30 craft stalls. Sample our home-made refreshments. Free parking for cars & coaches. Facebook: Etwall Well Dressing Association
