The performer, who has appeared around the world, demonstrated her incredible flexibility in Chequers Court where she folded herself into a 16-inch Perspex box.

The show was organised by Bid Huntingdon/ Huntingdon First. Manager Sue Bradshaw said: “It was a really nice day and a lot of people watched. The feedback was brilliant – people thought that it brought something different to Huntingdon.”

Bendy Em was joined by the Wendy Burke School of Dance, who performed an array of moves alongside Dave the Balloon Man and face painters.

“Dave the Balloon Man and the face painters were extremely busy again as they were last week when the Afrikan Warriors came with many of the kids walking around town with their faces painted,” added Ms Bradshaw.
