CHRISTMAS GIFT & FOOD FAIR

THE HUGELY SUCCESSFUL CHRISTMAS GIFT & FOOD FAIR AT ELY CATHEDRAL PROMISES TO BE ONE OF EAST ANGLIA'S EXCEPTIONAL CHRISTMAS SHOPPING EXPERIENCES FOR 2016.

Christmas Gift & Food Fair

18 Nov 2016 - 19 Nov 2016

Whether you're looking for a special gift, distinctive accessories or unique decorations, you'll be spoiled for choice. Beautiful and affordable items you'll rarely find on the high street, Ely Cathedral Christmas Gift & Food Fair makes a perfect day out.

This event will include several new trade stalls alongside popular exhibitors and an extended Festive Food Hall to make accessing all the 100's of stalls much easier. The heated 'Café Marquee' offers the perfect location to sit down for a rest and enjoy a selection of refreshments and light lunches. New for 2016 is an outdoor 'Street Food Fest' which will be open to visitors on Friday evening and Saturday. On Saturday too there will be plenty of attractions for children including the ever popular traditional carousel plus the reindeer and some very special Christmas elves. An interesting programme of demonstrations will feature throughout the two days. Musical entertainment will be provided by the Cathedral Choristers and other local performers.

The Ely Cathedral Christmas Gift & Food Fair takes place on 18 & 19 November 2016 with a special preview evening at 6.30pm on 17 November.

On Friday 18 November between 9am - 10am, we have created exclusive entry for users of Prams, Wheelchairs and Disability Scooters only.
