The Afrikan Warriors took to the cobbles of the town square to entertain crowds with flips, stunts and marvellous team work.

Bid Huntingdon/ Huntingdon First manager Sue Bradshaw said: “They performed something different that Huntingdon hasn’t seen before – it brings a bit of colour into the town.”

The main act was accompanied by face painters, balloon artists and a live musician for young and old alike to enjoy throughout the day.

“The face painters and the balloon makers were fantastic; they were busy all throughout the day which was brilliant.”
