The Ely show is being organised by Ely based Scott Archer, who runs an events company and has billed the night as “an entertainment packed evening for all.”

New solo artist Anton White will also perform, before the night ends with a late night disco. A fully licensed bar will be available.

Scott said: I want to bring something new to Ely, and The Maltings, which is under new management, is an ideal venue for a variety show. If this goes well, we are looking to make it a monthly event.”
