The Summer Lates event hosted by Ely Markets is returning to the city this week – here’s everything you need to know about the annual festival.

Each year, Ely Markets puts on its Summer Lates street food and live music event in the city's market place, this year it all kicks off on Friday, July 26 from 4pm to 9.30pm.

Emma Grima, commercial director of East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: "Come over early with the kids or join us in the evening.

This year we've got lots of delicious new street food for you to try, plus music from local ukulele group Ukul-Ely and dancing from 4th Dimension."

There will be street food - from Goan curry and Mexican tamales to Greek souvlaki and delicious meatballs - to enjoy alongside the entertainment.
