Well Dressing

2017 Well Dressing ‘Jane Austen 200’

Important Information for Well Dressing 2018

This year we have a change of venue and a change of dates for our annual Well Dressing.

We will NOT be preparing the well dressing in a marquee adjacent to the canal. We will be working in the GARAGE behind and attached to the Mechanics Institute. Access is via the entry between Bailey’s Restaurant and the Mechanics. The garage, which has tall wooden doors, is on the left. The completed picture will be on display in its normal position at Tom Brad’s Croft.


Preparation for the well Dressing begins on Saturday 16thJune when we hope to accommodate the children for their annual mini board weekend. The clay will be put into the boards on 17thJune and well Dressing in the Making will be from Sunday 17th– Saturday 23rdJune, during which time we will still welcome visitors and people who would like to help or learn the skills involved.


The Blessing will take place at Tom Brad’s Croft on Sunday 24thJune at 2.30pm with Whaley Bridge Brass Band, Whaley Bridge Primary School Choir and the Reverend Margaret Jones in attendance.

Please Note

This does not coincide with the carnival procession and art Exhibition, both of which are on Saturday 30thJune.
