The new year heralds a renewed focus on planning for a safe Ely Folk Festival 2021. We’ve liaised with council safety advisors on options for reorganising the layout of the festival site to enable us to put on great music in a safe environment. It will mean changes to how the festival operates over the weekend. We are confident that we now have an effective plan in place for putting on a safe, fun and music-filled festival over the weekend of 9-11 July 2021 and look forward to telling you more about it over the coming months. We will ofcourse respond to any new or revised government guidance on operating events that emerges. Thank you to festival friends, customers, stewards, artists, traders and suppliers for your continued support.
