Viva has kicked off its Street Life Tour, offering the opportunity to see what life was like in Fenland during World War Two.

The Soham-based arts and community group began its six-date tour in Littleport on Saturday (March 4), with live actors and exhibitions giving an insight into what the town looked like from 1939 to 1945.

The tour will continue in Soham on March 11, before stopping off in Ely, Chatteris and Prickwillow.

The exhibition is free, and dates are as follows:

• Saturday March 11, St Andrew’s Church, Soham 10am-2pm
