A gallery in East Cambridgeshire has been selected as a finalist in the Muddy Stilettos 2021 Awards for ‘Best Arts Gallery’ in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. 

The Babylon Gallery, which runs along Ely’s riverside, has reached the final stage, and the team are now asking for local support. 

Chief executive Claire Somerville said: “We’re delighted to have made it to the final five in the ‘Best Art Gallery’ category. 

“We’ve worked so hard in the last 18 months to rise to the challenges presented by Covid and showcase really exciting exhibitions. 

“Even when closed, we turned our windows into exhibition spaces and involved hundreds of people in creative projects.
