Eels will once again be the flavour of the month with the return of Ely’s Eel Festival weekend.

The celebrations begin on Saturday 4 May at 10.30am, when ‘Ellie the Eel’ will be heading a carnival like procession from Cross Green (adjacent to the Cathedral) along part of the City’s Eel Trail Heritage Walk.

Everybody is welcome to join in the procession which will be led by Ely’s Samba Band, who will guide everyone down to the Riverside and into Jubilee Gardens where a host of eel related activities will be held as well as Ely’s annual Town Crier’s Competition.
