Well Dressing Festival
Late May Bank Holiday
Wirksworth is home to the largest traditional Peak District Well Dressing Festival. Beautiful mosaics are painstakingly created with flower petals, leaves, mosses and other natural objects pressed into large clay covered frames. Each tells a unique story. They are displayed around town after each is blessed during a procession on the late May bank holiday weekend.
Wirksworth Open Gardens
Enjoy stunning displays in the town’s glorious gardens, hidden courtyards and planted patios during one weekend every June. A great opportunity to look behind the walls, be inspired by the gardens and enjoy delicious homemade cakes and teas on the way.
Wirksworth Beer Festival
Sample the finest real ales and craft beers from independent breweries across Derbyshire and surrounding counties. Entertainment is provided throughout the day by a host of local bands and other performers.
