“This event could not have happened without the continued support of all the local authorities, and it was great to join forces with local businesses such as Royston Tandori and Pinkster Gin while being entertained by local Royston performers including Seasons, Hayley Faulkner, One Fat Finger, Lilly ‘n Arthur, DJ Sam Gee and, of course, DJ Mark Gomez.”

Royston Summer Rock, featuring food, entertainment and stalls, took place on the same day and was organised by Royston Means Business.
