ART OF THE MATTER: The fourth annual Huntingdonshire Communities Festival took place at Godmanchester Recreation Ground on Saturday with a range of performing arts groups entertaining the crowds.
And if the performances were not enough, visitors could take part in workshops from the Rug-Cutters Lindyhop dance group, Bling Ya Ting street dancers and Senzala Capoeira, a Brazilian art form that puts together dance, fight, acrobatics and music in a game.
The theatricals involved included Stageworks from Buckden which presented an excerpt from its new musical, Our House, based on the group Madness, and Riverside Theatre Company which this summer is holding workshops based on the musical Hairspray.
Also taking part were Huntingdon Youth Theatre, the Hunts Hotshots Cheerleading Academy, the Masterton School of Irish Dancing and Scottish Highland Dance.

Organiser Karolina Bober said: "We were really pleased with the day, there were 2,200 people there and 300 of them arrived by boat from Huntingdon. It was a lovely day and there were queues for the free boat service. We had no problems, no complaints and no injuries, it all went very well."
The event is funded with a government grant with funds spread over three years.
