Etwall Well Dressing Association

Welcome to the official site of the Etwall Well Dressing Association!

Etwall village in Derbyshire has staged an annual 7409(lo)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 website.

EWDA Committee meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month starting at 7:30pm at the Blenheim House.  Anyone interested would be most welcome.


We will be holding our Festival in 2023 on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May and to welcome our visitors back for a great Festival comeback
