A CONCERT in aid of the Mayor of Royston's charity tomorrow evening (Friday) has been cancelled.

The Queen's Division Band - which is based at Bassingbourn Barracks - was due to give a Big Band Spectacular concert at Royston Town Hall.

But a lack of ticket sales means that the event had to be cancelled.

Town clerk Susan Thornton-Bjork said it was "disappointing" that the concert would not be going ahead.
