Aston-on-Trent Well Dressing at Aston-on-Trent
Well Dressing, Sat 2 - Thu 7 Jul 2016, free entry
Ian Dunn, Secretary, Aston Well Dressers
The Aston Well Dressing Festival is in its 20th year in 2016 and this July will see another fun-packed family festival with something for everyone in the pretty village of Aston on Trent. Come along and see these magnificent natural works of art and enjoy the entertainment. There is something for everyone this year, with Magicians, Puppets, Live Music and plenty more as well as the return of our Children’s Zone full of fun, games and crafts.
Money raised during the Festival Weekend will be equally split between two charities or groups – one from within the village of Aston and one from further afield, but with local connections.
2015 saw the Rainbows Children’s Hospice and Aston on Trent Pre-School each receive £1000 raised over the course of the Festival Weekend and other related activities.
