Gallery: Dr Who’s Daleks invade the Royston Arts Festival

ORGANISERS of this year’s Royston Arts Festival believe the success of the event has set a “benchmark for the future”.

The theme of the 2012 festival was About Time, and saw a host of concerts, shows, and other activities take place in Royston over the weekend, culminating in the traditional Last Night of the Proms-style finale concert on Sunday Evening.

Festival Chairman Graham Palmer said: “We have already had an overwhelmingly positive response to this year’s events and I think it has really set the bench mark for the future.

“Everyone involved embraced the theme of About Time, which helped make all the events and exhibitions such a success.

“It is difficult to say what the highlight was as there were so many things which people thoroughly enjoyed,” he said.

Events included piano concert from the internationally-renowned Cann twins, and a visit from iconic Dr Who villains, the Daleks, who put on three shows at Tannery Drift School
