A festival encouraging people in Royston to get creative will be held this week.

Creative Royston – the group behind Royston Arts Festival – will be showcasing local talent to celebrate Voluntary Arts Week.

A spokesman for Creative Royston said: “The aim of the events is to give people the chance to be creative and get involved.

“It’s about people taking part and being creative, not just being spectators.

“We want groups around the town to come and run these events themselves.”

On Tuesday, Royston Photographic Society will host an evening Photowalk.

People taking part are encouraged to bring a camera along to take photos of interesting things that catch their attention, such as plants and animals.
