St Etheldreda – Celebrating 1350 years of Ely’s Foundation.

To mark this significant occasion, we are celebrating the life and legacy of this remarkable Saxon Queen with a year-long programme of events, concerts, services and exhibits.

Highlights include a new guided tour focussing on Etheldreda’s time in Ely, a visual interpretation depicting the four key stages of her life from East Anglian Princess to Anglo Saxon Saint, and a live performance of a newly commissioned play.

Other events across the city will bring the community together to commemorate this historic anniversary year for Ely.
