Super Summer Entertainment in Huntingdon | Saturday 6 August

Covent Garden entertainer, AJ James
Escapologist and Acrobat

Huntingdon High Street/St Benedict’s Court
Various times throughout the day between 10.30am and 2.30pm.

AJ has performed around the world, tumbling, escaping and making people laugh along the way and will be here in Huntingdon on Saturday 6 August. He can, we are told, hold the audience in the palm of his hand whether it is to thousands at a music festival, in Covent Garden, a packed theatre or an intimate crowd on the street. That will be us then!

Knife juggling on a balance board (even going so far as to perform upside down!) and a timed escape from chains are just his warm up. Leaping through the air and multiple back flips has the audience holding their breath whenever he performs.

His invigorating performance is seriously action-packed with multiple back-flips and somersaults so be prepared to gasp at his daring and laugh at his humour!

AJ began performing from a very young age adding many skills along the way such as gymnastics, martial arts and skateboarding to name a few. Even before leaving school he had represented Great Britain as part of a gymnastics display team and won regional martial arts tournaments.

He has gone on to win many awards, been a stunt performer for film and television, a consultant in circus education, an event producer and even a stand-up comedian. As a professional escapologist and knife juggler, his performances here in Huntingdon will be thrilling to say the least!
