Ely Cathedral hosted its inaugural Summer Gift and Food Fair on Saturday.

The fun-filled event included theatre, shopping, food and entertainment and saw scores of people flock to the cathedral.

The fair opened at 10am and hosted more than 60 food and craft stalls plus a tea tent, Pimms Bar, hog roast, coconut shy, children’s activities and friendly farm animals.

And there was also an appearance from Cambridge Theatre Company, which put on an interactive production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland on the cathedral’s east lawn.

There was also a variety of farm animals on display from Church Farm, of Stow Bardolph, in Norfolk.
