eel2  Ely – the isle of eels – has celebrated Eel Day in recent years. This year it will be on Saturday 29th April and in addition to activities such as eel throwing* and a town crier competition, Ely Folk Festival will be supporting the event by hosting a live music concert in Jubilee Gardens by the river. The free event will be a taster for the 2017 festival as the line-up will include Moxette, Rob Curtis, & The Boxwood Chessmen, all of whom will be performing at our Friday Night Showcase. So, put the date in your diary and get along for a day of fun & frolics – more information can be found at    *No eels are harmed at Ely Eel Day!
