Organisers are finalising their preparations for the popular event, which attracts people from across the country to see the colourful floral displays created by local residents, clubs and groups.
The festival has been a regular fixture in the village calendar since 1970 and is organised by the Etwall Well Dressing Association.
Among the sponsors of this year’s event are Bloor Homes, whose Alms Meadows development is located in the village.
Proceeds from the festival will be donated to Etwall Art Group, Etwall Methodist Church, Sight Support Derbyshire and Derby Toc H Children’s Camp.
Alyson Horton, Chair of the Etwall Well Dressing Festival, said: “Etwall Well Dressing is the biggest event in the village and is a fantastic way of bringing the community together. The well dressings are designed, produced and mounted by societies, clubs and groups of residents, and we are sure it will be another successful and enjoyable weekend.
“With the support of our sponsors we are hoping to make this year’s festival even more successful than previous years, and we are grateful to Bloor Homes for kindly donating a raffle prize, which will help to raise money for our chosen charities.”
Michele Rose, Regional Sales Director for Bloor Homes Midlands, said: “Etwall Well Dressing is a wonderful event for the whole community and we are delighted to be supporting it.
“We wish the organisers all the best for this year’s event, and hope that lots of people turn out to enjoy the spectacle.”
