"There are differences this time round, with the tickets and time limits but this has been done to let as many people shop and explore in comfort and safety. This is just the first of our events this year in Ely and to answer an age old question. 

“No, you don’t have to be a pagan to attend. Everyone is welcome. Oh, and we’ve got our famous raffle too.
