Sadly the Tissington Well Dressing Committee have decided to cancel the event that was to  have taken place over Ascensiontide Week from May 21-27 this year. Alongside  all other gatherings in the country this was the only option as the event attracts over 35,000 visitors each year.

The Village and its vibrant community hope to hold their other fund-raising events for   St Mary’s Church namely the Church Fete at Tissington Hall and The Open Gardens Sunday in July and will keep visitors informed with updates.

Sir Richard FitzHerbert, owner of the Tissington Estate, said ’ Of course it is awfully sad that our major Village Event will not take place this year. Everyone in the village was looking forward to it and it bonds our community together so wonderfully. We all have our social responsibility in these extraordinary times and I do hope that we will emerge again in May 2021  so that we can keep our traditions alive.’
