From small beginnings in 1985, this festival has grown to become well established, while maintaining its reputation for seeing great live acts in an intimate and family friendly setting. It boasts an impressive guest list and programme of workshops, concerts, displays, ceilidhs and children's entertainment. The musicians appearing at the Ely Folk Festival reflect the rich diversity of the modern music scene, with a mixture of established favourites and newer talent.
The Folk Festival is based on a single site which includes marquees, camping facilities, food stalls, trade stands, real-ale bar, real toilets, showers, children's entertainment... Ely city centre is accessible by shuttle bus (or 20 minutes' walk). Things also happen in town during the day e.g. morris displays and pub sessions. There is space for tents and caravans on site, and free parking is provided close to the festival site.
