Buxton Well Dressing volunteers will be running a bottle stall at the Dickensian Street Market on Saturday 29th November 2014 from 10.15am until 4.15pm. The market, which will be held INSIDE the Pavilion Gardens Octagon Hall, is a great day out for all the family with lots of entertainment. Come along, enjoy the atmosphere and help raise money for very worthy local charities, including Buxton Well Dressing Festival. PS Father Christmas will be there and the market is open from 10.15am until 4.15pm.

Watch for the first time ever this ancient Derbyshire tradition as the petallers carefully bring the designs to life, all captured on a 3 minute time-lapse film.  Huge thanks to Anna and her team at EDNA for creating this wonderful video for us!
