How far could you throw an eel? That will be the question on everyone’s lips at the World Eel Throwing competition taking place on Eel Day which is part of Ely’s Eel Festival Weekend this Spring Bank Holiday. 

No actual eels will be harmed in the contest – the organisers use toy eels. It is all part of the fun and just one of the eel-related activities happening across the weekend which runs from April 29 to May 2 in celebration of all things eel.
