A family fun eco event is back with twice as many trade stands, new exhibitors and exciting demonstrations.

Following the success of the inaugural event in 2021, and the unexpected cancellation in 2022 due to the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II, Ely Cathedral’s annual Green Fair is back, and it’s bigger and better than ever.

More than 80 trade stands, exhibitors, local organisations and environment groups will be taking part in this free event on Saturday, August 5 in the grounds of Ely Cathedral.

Demonstrations will be taking place throughout the day and will include: wood turning, weaving, flower arranging and needle felting, plus children’s creative workshops by Re-Imagine.

Visitors can enjoy wandering around the many artisan craft stalls. Food will be a major feature with several local producers alongside street food traders providing a feast of delicious options including New Deli street food, wood fired pizza, cakes, brownies, and locally brewed beer from the Three Blind Mice Brewery.

National and regional organisations, dedicated to supporting our local communities and the environment, will be on-hand to share their knowledge and views including The Wildlife Trust, Cam Cycle, South East Cambs Badger Group, ECDC Climate Change, Therapy Dogs and the RSPB.
