Event Description

The popular festival, which will be held from Saturday 29 April to Sunday 7 May 2022, will see up to 45 wells creatively decorated.

The 2023 theme hasn’t been announced yet but past themes have included Literature, Planets and Stars, Flight and Darwin’s Earth.

Usually the festival starts with dressing the wells, judging takes place on Saturday or Sunday and prize giving with rosettes and certificates on Bank Holiday Monday, in Priory Park where family fun day also takes place.

The annual event is brought to the town by the Malvern Spa Association with local businesses and community groups taking part. In all, around 200 adults and over 500 school children will all be involved in dressing the wells across Malvern.

Visitors can view the wonderful creations by setting off across the hills on foot, by bicycle or on a self-drive tour.

Entertainment taking place includes singing, well blessings, minibus tours (hopefully) and more.
