Ely Folk Festival looks as though it’s well on its way to selling out again this year. The strong line-up combined with the festival’s reputation as a small family friendly events has proved a winning combination. Although weekend and Saturday tickets have now sold out, there are still tickets available for Friday night and Sunday.
The festival committee is working hard on the final stages of festival preparation. The huge number of entries for the popular Band Competition is currently being assessed and the results should be available soon. The Ely Folk Festival stall at Eel Day proved a popular draw and folk musicians Andy Wall, Matt Kelly and Bof! had the crowds toe-tapping along.
The festival relies on a small army of volunteers helping out over the festival weekend. If you fancy trying your hand at stewarding at this year’s festival, check out the information section on the festival website.
