Events in 2018 organised by Whatstandwell Social Club
Whatstandwell Festival 22 & 23 June 2018
Following a successful trial last year, this annual event will again be held over two days.
Commencing on Friday afternoon through the evening, then from early afternoon on the Saturday until late in the evening. The venue as usual will be at Hankin Farm where camping and caravan pitches are available for the adventurous. Watch out for our advertising boards nearer the time for the details, and of course the WSW Social Club website will be updated as more details of the entertainments on offer become known.
15 July 2018. Open Gardens
All proceeds from this event will go this year to the Peak District Mountain Rescue charity.
Details of which gardens will be open are not yet finalised but watch the website later in the Spring for all the details. There will also be boards around the village giving details nearer the time. Last year’s was also held in July which was felt to be a nice time to see the gardens in their summer colours. And more chance of the weather being kind? Hope to see you there.
Possible new event – Well Dressing
The Social Club has been asked by organisers of the Crich Well Dressing committee if there would be interest in the village producing a Panel to display somewhere suitable in Whatstandwell, to complement the one at Crich and possibly other local villages.
The committee would like to hear from any interested individuals who might be prepared to set up a team to take the project on. The clay filled tray will be provided but the choice of theme and the actual decoration would be down to the team.
If you would like to know more we would be happy to hear from you.
