Malvern Well Dressing 2021
30 November -1
What: Malvern Well Dressing
Where: Around Malvern
When: Saturday 1st May to Sunday 9th May
Why: For the love of it - why not?
Who: 49 Teams, 30 Adult, 13 Childrens and 6 not judged.
39 teams dressing for 9 days and 10 teams dressing for 5 days.
As May Day approaches so Malvern’s thoughts turn to Well Dressing.
In these Covid-19 curtailed times we have still managed to create the Well Dressing Festival.
This years Theme is “Planets and Stars”, voted best idea back in January. It was Phil Ironside’s inspiration, who says: “It’s a wide subject, open to many easy interpretations and we live in an incredible Universe.”
So for Saturday 1st May we will have 49 wells dressed. Come and see the Wells in their glory. Find them using a map from Malvern Tourist information or search for a map online.
You have a week to enjoy them, while some wells come down on Wednesday 5th May, most on Sunday 9th.
What Covid-19 has culled are any associated events. So where 7 or more may want to gather, it’s not happening: There is no May Day Priory Park Water Festival, no Minibus Tours, no public Water Blessings.
But, there is a marvellous Church Walk Photo Exhibition, From Waitrose to the Priory Gateway, the Malvern Spa Association Summer Exhibition of 25 breathtaking photos. It opens on Monday 26th April and will run until the end of June.
So, lets use any excuse to enjoy the Malverns and Well Dressing is a marvellous excuse, just do it as 2 families or up to 6 people. So come, find, enjoy the Wells, enjoy the outside, enjoy release from lock-down.
