Saturday 1 August – Bendy Em
Bendy Em has headlined international festivals all over the globe, featured in advertisements for Hewlett-Packard, appeared in the movie X-Men Origins, Wolverine, and made product launches come alive!

Unique and completely unforgettable, Bendy Em is one of the world’s leading contortionists. This pint-sized entertainer can bend her limbs like you never thought was possible and fit her whole body into a sixteen inch Perspex box.

Alongside will be those much-loved regular entertainers, Dave the Balloon Man, the popular face painters who paint for free and the Wendy Burke School of Dance.

All brought to you by Huntingdon First/BID Huntingdon.
