ELY FOLK WEEKEND 2002
12th to 14th July 2002
VISITED, SNAPPED & REVIEWED BY www.Ely.Org.UK
Thank Folk It's...ELY Folk Weekend..!
The Folk Weekend experience began on Friday Night @ the Rugby Club. Mine began Saturday morning with the fearsome sight of the Witchmen morris men side bangin' and boppin' their way down the High Street and round to the Cathedral.
As regular visitors to Ely, The Witchmen are instantly recognisable in their black and amber ragged jackets looking rather like an ancient version of Cambridge United.
As well as The Witchmen, 13 other Molly 'sides' descended on the City. Among them: Ely and Littleport riot,
the Iron Men,
Full Moon and,
my favourites, Heartsease.

They're a women's dance team from Bedfordshire and had that look of the Stepford Wives about them.
Entertaining but a little bit...disturbing.
ABOVE: Witches @ the Gates of Heaven... The Pagan Gals get happy on the Castle..!


This storm of noise and colour brightened up a Saturday morning in the city and made the council approved 'street entertainers' look like corporate 'fun' in comparison. It was spontaneous, raucous and just a little bit sexy.

A Reglar FREE Bus Service ferries people from the City Centre to the Rugby Club. And to think this would all happen again tomorrow..!
Anyone who went down to Sunny Hunny sure missed out..!
