The final show, on August 25, will see Devilstick Peat bring his unique form of magic and comic juggling back to Chatteris.

The shows, which last around an hour each, are organised and funded by Chatteris Town Council. Admission is free and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Chatteris town clerk Joanna Melton said: “The shows regularly attract over 100 people - excited children accompanied by parents, grandparents and childminders.”
