Wormhill Well Dressing and the Wormhill Stomp
As mention in an earlier post about forthcoming events, we are fast approaching the time of the Wormhill Well Dressing week. This runs for a week from Saturday 27th August until Sunday 4th September. Well Dressings go back several centuries, but after a period of the tradition having ceased in Wormhill it was restarted in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain celebrations.
As this year is the 60th aniversary of the Festival of Britain, we are holding a village party “the Wormhill Stomp”. We will have real ale, 2 bands, DJ, Hog Roast and BBQ. The start time is 7pm and tickets are £7 in advance or £10 on the door. Tickets can be bought from us.
