Dance theatre at Ely Markets this half term


This half term Ely Markets is hosting an exciting dance performance for all the family. There will be two performances of The Weather Machine on Wednesday 27 October in the Market Place. This is a free event, brought to the city by Babylon Arts and Ely Markets.

"Babylon Arts is delighted to be working with Ely Markets again to bring some fun and creativity to the Market Square this October half-term,” says Claire Somerville, Chief Executive of Babylon Arts. “The Weather Machine is a bite-size dance show for young children and their families and we hope to see lots of people coming to enjoy a performance like we had with 'Moon' in 2019".

The Weather Machine is an entertaining dance theatre performance on the themes of weather & the seasons. This outdoor performance features two dancers and will seek to explain climate change in a playful and gentle way that is suitable for all the family.

“Ely Markets is delighted to be showcasing an exciting community event this half term,” says Emma Grima, Director Commercial, East Cambs Trading Company. “This free performance of The Weather Machine is great way to explain the challenges of climate change to children through the magic of dance. We will also have refreshments available on the Market Place to keep everyone happy!”

The Weather Machine is aimed at children aged 3-9 years and their families. There will be two chances to see the dance performance on Wednesday 27 October 2021 at 12 noon and 1:30pm on Ely Market Place. The performances are free to attend, and no tickets are required. The run time for each performance is approximately 20 minutes.
