ELY's Party in the Park will bring a packed programme of eclectic entertainment to the stunning surroundings of Cherry Hill Park this weekend.

The events kick off tomorrow (Friday) with Electric Eel exposed, offering the chance to see five up and coming local bands for just £5: Still Not Around, Numlocq, Ascendia, Loop and After Effect.

On Saturday night, Ely's own Garden Theatre Company will take to the stage to perform a selection of classic show tunes from popular musicals in Show Time! The production is a change to the scheduled performance of Rodgers and Hart's musical On Your Toes. If you have already bought a ticket to the show, contact the number below for more information.

The Family Festival Day on Sunday, from 11am to 4.30pm, includes comedy, children's theatre and live music and promises to be a fantastic day out for all of the family.

Events manager at Arts Development in East Cambridgeshire, Nathan Jones, said: "ADeC has been working very hard with East Cambridgeshire District Council to bring this weekend together and it's going to be a great event.

"If people want more information about the bands as well as the children's theatre, opera and musical performance they can look at our website www.adec.org.uk or call 01353 616991, which is also our ticket hotline.
