For the second year running, Ely Folk Festival has sold out in advance of the festival weekend. A strong line-up and great reputation for good music have ensured strong ticket sales this year. Andy Wall, chairman of the festivalâ€™s organising committee said â€œItâ€™s great news that the festival has sold out again this year. It reflects the hard work the committee has put into selecting great performers and putting together a varied programme of activities to ensure that thereâ€™s something for everyone to enjoy at the festival.â€
The Mayor of Ely, Councillor Brian Ashton will visit the festival site on Friday evening to have a look at the activities taking place and to meet some of the hard-working volunteers who are responsible for making the festival happen.
The annual morris dancing procession will kick off at 11am on Saturday morning, proceeding along the High Street, Ely to the market square. This year 14 morris dance sides will take part. The morris sides will dance in various spots around Ely city centre during the afternoon.
Please note that NO tickets will be available for sale at the Box Office on the festival site over the weekend.
