Ely Events and Reading Groups

In this atmospheric medieval city, just over an hour from London by train, author events range from reading groups and intimate events in the bookshop to the drama of performances under the world-renowned Octagon of Ely Cathedral. We hold events all year round, but in the autumn there is a special focus on the Ely Literary Festival.


November update
Our November events will not go ahead on the originally scheduled dates. If you've booked places, we'll be in touch shortly. We’re working hard to reschedule postponed events, and we will be touch to confirm new dates as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience and support.

We’re hard at work putting together the Ely events programme!
