City Centre Business Eel Throwing Competition

As a warm up to the World Championships, local retailers and businesses have the opportunity to battle it out to be crowned “City Centre Eel Throwing Business of the Year”, kindly sponsored by the Ely Chamber of Commerce.  Always held on the Friday in Ely Market Place, it is definately the place to come along and see some fun entertainment as throwing an eel isn't as easy as it may sound!

Displaying here is 2018's winner - Ely Museums (made up of staff from both Ely Museum and The Stained Glass Museum) with an amazing throw of 11.8 metres.

Applications to be part of 2019's competition open in the New Year but if you would like to express an early interest then please contact us for information on the entry criteria. We know it's early so why not get some practice in!
