A magic show, assault course, face-painting and plenty of games made for a memorable first Viva Eggstravaganza on Good Friday.

Members of the Viva Youth Theatre Group played host to hundreds of visitors at The Brook, in Soham, for a day of fun and games, which raised more than £800 for the group.

The money will be put towards the cost of the group’s next production, Les Miserables, due to be performed in July.

Hetti Wood, Viva volunteer, said: “It was great fun, we had a fantastic time. We had lots of people come through the doors so we were really pleased. We’re already looking at making this an annual event.”
