Chesterfield Well Dressing Festival

Well dressing is an ancient custom unique to Derbyshire. Chesterfield began well dressing in 1864 when the Town Pump in Market Place was decorated after a very dry summer.

Find out how a well dressing is made by watching the well dressers at work. Once complete, the well dressings will be displayed at the ‘Crooked Spire’ Church in the porch and on the town pump at Market Place (opposite Primark).

Monday 3rd to Friday 7th September – See the well dressing under construction in the Church porch and in The Pavements Shopping Centre

Saturday 8th September – There will be a service of blessing at 10am at the church

Sunday 9th September to Saturday 15th September – View the well dressing on display
