Haverhill town centre will play host to a range of eccentric and colourful characters on Saturday (July 5) - all in the name of entertainment.

The High Street, Market Place and Queen Street will be full of the weird and wonderful street performers when the Haverhill Street Festival takes place.

Performers will be out from 11am onwards for the Street Festival, which is free and organised by Haverhill Town Council as part of the Haverhill Festival.

Nick Keeble, the town council’s arts and leisure manager said: “Whatever the weather there will be something to liven up your Saturday shop this week

“It will be like Covent Garden minus the exhorbitant prices.”

There will be some rather pretentious art critics who see art in everything (darling).

Joining them will be an Edwardian nanny with cheeky twin babies yet to master the art of civility and Bang On! a junk percussion duo who make music from the most unlikely objects.

There will also be a team of spectacular silver skaters scooting around; the amusing, amazing, and sometimes eye-watering antics of acrobat AJ James and Bridie, an eight foot tall Irish tea-lady who is obsessed with crooner Dean Martin.
