The Alresford Watercress Festival is bought to you by a small committee and a lot of support from the Watercress Industry and our wonderful volunteers.

The event is not for profit and the only income is:

  • Sponsorship - click here to see details of our 2022 partners

  • Trader pitch fees 

  • Car Parking 

Any profit made over and above the running costs is donated back to the clubs and associations that support us. 

Power & Water 

Is kindly provided by Eddolls Carpets and the wonderful Caroline a local resident.


Without Barnes & Liddiard there would be no music, cooking or big screen.

Volunteer Groups 

Friends, Family and local residents all volunteer to help with traffic, parking, barriers, and visitor safety - it would be impossible to deliver this massive event without them. 


The atmosphere in Alresford was amazing. Several sides of Morris dancers, live music, stalls selling wonderful foods and the most amazing atmosphere. This is a terrific day out.
