Saturday 8th July
West Hallam Well Dressing Festival Day 2023
West Hallam Village
The 44th annual Well Dressing Festival Day in West Hallam takes place on Saturday 8th July from 12.00 midday to 4.00pm
Visitors will be able to view a wonderful display of colourful and beautifully decorated wells as villagers seek to keep the ancient Derbyshire tradition alive.
There will also be street entertainment, local charity and produce stalls, an arts market and a free children’s entertainment area.
As the centre of the village will be closed to traffic, visitors can stroll around and enjoy the attractions in safety.
There will also be plenty of refreshment outlets to suit all tastes. Whether it’s a sit down in the village hall or the church for tea and cakes, a glass or two of the fizzy stuff at the prosecco bar, some locally brewed real ale to sample, delights from the BBQ or simply a cold drink of pop or water – there is something for everyone.
Free parking is available in the local primary school which is only 100 yards walk to the action. For satnav use DE7 6GU.
The organising committee look forward to welcoming everyone to the centre of West Hallam village. “This is our biggest community event of the year. There is no entrance fee so come along and enjoy a lovely summer event.”
