Watercress Week
17th - 23rd May 2021 


Date for your diary
15 May 2022


Thank you for visiting our virtual Watercress Festival. 

As regular visitors to our site will know we had hoped to deliver a smaller "live" festival in 2021, but despite the best efforts of all parties concerned, this was impossible to deliver safely.  We would rather be with you in real life, but we hope you enjoy our first (and last) virtual Watercress Week! 

On the What's On page you will find the instructions to join any live event, please register in advance where necessary. All sessions will have a committee member in attendance to manage the Q&A and videos/sound will be off for all spectators. For the prerecorded sessions the links to the videos will be activated at the time scheduled. All sessions will be available to view on the Watercress Festival You Tube page. 

We have also included a shopping page, where you can visit the websites of some of our regular traders, many of these offering a discount code. These are still being added to so do check back for new stalls. 

On the recipe page you will find a selection of tried and tested recipes.  We will be adding to these as the demonstrations take place and we will include any that we receive from social media - If you have any you would like to include please post them using hash tag #cookingwithwatercress.


Whilst you are on the site please have a look at the charity and community page, and where you can support our festival charity ABBY’S HEROES

Please do join us online for 2021 and we look forward to seeing you in the streets of Alresford on 15th May 2022.
