Now in its 6th successive year Ely Cathedral provides the most majestic setting for the annual Christmas Gift & Food Fair. This year over 150 traders selling bespoke & beautiful gifts, alongside a much extended food hall, are responsible for the ever growing popularity of this event which is acknowledged as one of East Anglia’s most popular Christmas Fairs.
The Festive Food Hall is a gastronomic delight with an emphasis on good quality, regional produce. These gourmet specialists include cheesemongers, chocolatiers, patisseries, delicatessens of specialists oils, vinegars and preserves, distillers of gin, vodka & cider and butchers of locally produced meat products and charcuterie.
Live demonstrations in cake decorating, seasonal flower arrangements and wreaths will be taking place over the two day event. Visitors to the Fair can also enjoy a ride on the vintage carousel transporting you into the magical world of a traditional fairground while the live reindeer and Christmas elves will be providing plenty of entertainment for all the family.
“Every year we aim to make the Christmas Gift & Food Fair and more exciting and interesting experience for visitors. We are limiting ticket sales so people can have a more pleasurable shopping experience and there is a dedicated session for ‘Shoppers with Wheels’ on Friday 17th at 9.00am for users of wheelchairs, scooters and pushchairs. If previous years are anything to go buy we strongly recommend you buy your tickets in advance”.
The event runs from 17th to 18th November. To book tickets visit tickets.elycathedral.org or contact the Cathedral Box Office on 01353 660349
