The Ely Arts Festival brings with it two theatre productions to enjoy during the two-week festival. 

The first production is from a group called Impromptu Shakespeare. 

They will take suggestions from the audience and use that to create a one-act performance in the style of Shakespeare.  

They’ve previously performed at the Edinburgh Fringe, Bristol Shakespeare Festival and appeared on BBC Shakespeare Live. 

Tickets are available online at for £5 to £12.50. They will perform at The Maltings in Ely on Thursday, June 23 at 7.30pm. 

The other production, Numinous, is a comedy about change and will power based on the life of educationalist Henry Morris, who set up the village college and was a figurehead of 20th century education. 

The production will take place at the Adams Heritage Centre in Littleport on June 28.
