The late-night festive celebration is helping the city count down to Christmas through a variety of food and gift stalls and entertainment.

Live music, mince pies and mulled wine is all on the menu, as well as artisan food stalls such as Steak and Honour and Choux Stopper.

Regular Ely Market traders such as Oriolo’s jewellery, Jo Clark Designs cards, prints and mugs and Buster and Lou’s gifts have also returned, and SilverOak coffee with their espresso martinis is on hand to keep shoppers warm.

Julia Davis, member of the Ely Markets Team, said: “We know that our visitors will find loads of delicious food, unique gifts that support local businesses and a wonderful atmosphere.

“We are very proud of the traders on our craft and collectables market on a Saturday and this will be a great chance for more people to discover their products.”

The Market Team is also teaming up with Ely Museum, which is being treated to a visit from Father Christmas on Thursday December 8 from 5.30-7.30pm.
