Ely Folk Festival City Centre Folk Festival Procession to Go Ahead
Joint statement between East Cambridgeshire District Council and Ely Folk Festival:
There had been doubts over whether Ely Folk Festival’s traditional Ely city centre procession would go ahead this year due to health and safety concerns. However, all now seems to be well following this statement:
“Following a very successful meeting between the council and Ely Folk Festival, we are pleased to confirm that all concerns have been addressed and a managed procession will take place using the traditional route in harmony with the Farmer’s Market and craft Market. The festival is steeped in history and the procession is a central part of the event. By working together, we have been able to reach a positive outcome with which all parties are satisfied. We look forward to a well-managed, safe, fun-filled weekend for all to enjoy and this continues in the future.”
Ely Folk Festival is to be held Friday 12th July – Sunday 14th July. See the folk festival website here.
