Ely's Tourist Information Centre, based at Oliver Cromwell's House, are the organisers of Ely's Eel Festival Weekend.  A unique four day, fun packed celebration all based around the humble eel.  As part of the Food and Drink Festival on Sunday 30th April and Monday 1st May, Oliver Cromwell's House is host to a series of "Audiences With" providing food and drink lovers the opportunity to hear the personal stories of four different people and find out why they are so passionate about their crafts.

We are all keenly awaiting the opening of Britain’s first sake brewery in Fordham by the Dojima Family later this year. We are thrilled to be able to feature owner and master brewer of Dojima Brewery, Mr Hashimoto, to be our fourth participant in our series of  "An Audience with" sessions.

This is your opportunity to learn more about Japan's much loved beverage including the technique for brewing as well as how best to drink it, including tasting several varieties.

Tickets are limited to just 22 spaces.  Session starts at 2.30 pm and last for 45 minutes.  Over 18s only.
