240 children and their families enjoyed free entertainment in Ely when they were blown away by a dance performance.

Babylon ARTS collaborated with Ely Markets to bring The Weather Machine to Ely Market Place on Wednesday October 27.

Directed by Kate Flatt, The Weather Machine is a playful outdoor work where two witty characters make magic out of dance and weather.

From the pitter patter of the lightest rain shower to the awesome howl of a storm, from footsteps in the snow to a joyful celebration of sunshine.

Claire Somerville, Babylon ARTS’ chief executive, said: "We were delighted to team-up with Ely Markets again and would like to thank them for their support.

"We have plans for more dance and theatre performances in 2022.”
