A group of travelling performers are looking to recruit members.

Cab-Hoo-Ray needs anyone with a talent to join its band of 12 performers on the road as they tour Essex with a two-and-a-half hour show.

The group performs for free at private venues such as nursing homes and any donations received go to performers' expenses, Great Ormond Street Hospital or London Chest Hospital.

The group is made up of magicians, musicians, singers and dancers and anyone wanting to get involved can call Cab-Hoo-Ray director John Dudman on 0208 551 6853.

The 80-year-old has been touring the county for 38 years after starting it in order to entertain the elderly or those who were unable to leave their house.

The group’s next gig is in Manor Court Lodge in High Road, South Woodford on May 9.
