Ely Folk Festival 2012 – Free Festival Ticket In Return For Working As A Steward

The line-up for Ely Folk Festival 2012 has been annouced and my goodness what a line-up it is! Featuring some of the biggest names on the British folk and roots circuit and with keenly priced tickets and a family-friendly vibe, it’s no wonder festival tickets are selling out fast. Headline acts include fabulous roots duo Show of Hands, The Blues Band, Jez Lowe, Nancy Kerr and James Fagan, Scottish band Breabach and cajun band Elvis Fontenot and the Sugar Bees.

Ely Folk Festival will take place 13 – 15 July at the Outdoor Centre on Downham Road. It has been one of the very few folk festivals to make it onto the Sunday Times list of Top 100 Festivals in the last three years. Fantastic music, ceilidhs, opportunities to take part in music and dance workshops, kids entertainment, a real ale bar and a laid-back atmosphere are the ingredients that make for a great day or weekend out at the festival for all the family.

Weekend, day and evening tickets are now available for sale. You can buy a ticket on-line via the website elyfolkfestival.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01353 669985. The festival has sold out in advance for the last four years, so get your tickets early.

Alternatively, if you would like a free festival ticket in return for working as a steward on the festival site for 10 hours over the festival, check out the website for details on how to apply.

To keep up with festival information, check out the website elyfolkfestival.co.uk or follow it on facebook or twitter @ElyFolk.
