Workshops and Competitions

Festival Workshops, sessions & meets

Ely Folk Festival prides itself on enabling our visitors to participate in the music and dance taking place over the weekend by taking part in the  many workshops that operate; join in with one of our sessions; or get up close and personal with our guest musicians by way of informal meets.
