For the third year running, Ely Folk Festival has sold out in advance of the festival weekend. A great line-up of acts plus the festivalâ€™s reputation for fantastic entertainment at good value has ensured demand for festival tickets. 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€
If you havenâ€™t secured a ticket for the festival, you can still catch a taste of it with the annual morris dancing procession through Ely City Centre on the Saturday morning of the festival weekend (9th July). This year 16 morris dance sides from all over the UK 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.
