The date has been set for this summer’s Huntingdon Riverside Gala which showcases local charities and organisations.

It will take place at the town’s Riverside Park on June 9.

Local businessman Malcolm Lyons, who has been involved with the annual event for many years, is organising the show and said there would be appearances by Superman and Elsa from Frozen.

He is looking for volunteers to help organise the gala as well as play a part running it on the day.

Mr Lyons said a number of attractions had already been signed up for the gala and talks were taking place with others.

“Each year we keep a little of the money back to pay for the following year’s event which costs about £2,000 to put on.”

Mr Lyons said: “If there is any left over I want to give it to local groups.”
