Ely's Jubil-Eel Day

There’s a certain glint of Platinum on the scales of the Ely Eel. This year the ever-popular Ely Eel Day is celebrating two marvellous things – the rich history of the Eel in Ely and the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Elizabeth II.

For 2022 the Eel Parade will return, featuring a wide variety of groups, entertainers and more – which will kick off the celebrations that will take place on Jubilee Gardens (How apt!)

There will be stalls and entertainments, ranging from Live Music to Dancing and more, and to bring the community together like never before, there will be the Big Ely Street Party – in the traditional style of a spectacular gathering – so bring your picnic or treat yourself to something from one of our fabulous Street Food Sellers!

Dress in your best Red, White and Blue and party like it’s 1952! Oh and we’ll provide some flags!
