Well Dressing

2018 Well Dressing ‘Garden Show’

Important Information for Well Dressing 2019

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.

Dates for Well Dressing 2019

Preparation for the well Dressing begins on Saturday 15thJune 2019 when we hope to accommodate the children for their annual mini board weekend. The clay will be put into the boards on 15th June and well Dressing in the Making will be from Sunday 16th– Saturday 22rdJune, 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 in the Station Car Park on Sunday 23thJune 2019 at 2.30pm with Whaley Bridge Brass Band, Whaley Bridge Primary School Choir and the Reverend Margaret Jones in attendance. The boards will be available to view in the Station car park from the 24th to the 30th of June.
