A unique town trail of heroes and villains is to be created for this year’s Royston Arts Festival.

Organised by Creative Royston, the trail will see ceramic plaques depicting some of Royston’s historic characters placed on selected buildings around the town.

Creative Royston chairman Graham Palmer said: “The art trail will capture this year’s theme of Heroes and Villains and will cover a range of people from witches to war heroes.”

There will be about 15 ceramic plaques on buildings around the town which will include the town hall, Market Hill Rooms, the Royston Methodist Church, UHY accountants and Cambridge Wine, both in Kneesworth Street.

Each plaque has been designed by artist Liz Beardwell after research by members of the Royston Local History Society and the Royston & District Museum. Students from Royston schools have then taken the

designs and interpreted them in their own way. The tiles will be produced by Royston company, GlazedCreations.

Royston Arts Festival (supported by Johnson Matthey plc) runs between 19-28 September 2014.
