Postponement of Buxton Well Dressings and Carnival 2021

We are sad to announce that the Buxton Well Dressings and Carnival have been postponed and will not go ahead in July as originally hoped.

The continuing uncertainty and risks involved with the pandemic have led us to this decision. The safety of the hundreds of people involved in the preparation for the events is of utmost importance to us and was our primary consideration.

We are hoping to hold the Buxton Well Dressing Festival in some form in the late summer/early autumn.

To enter the Carnival or Premises competition you need to complete a form. These will be available here from 1st April. The closing date for entries is 30th June.

The Selection of the Buxton Well Dressing Queen and retinue will be held on 15th March 2020. More information and Entry Forms can be found here.
