ROYSTON arts festival WILL go ahead in 2010 after a glut of new volunteers came forward to run the event.
It had been feared the 2010 festival would have to be cancelled due to a lack of man power, with many members of the previous management committee having had to step down.
However, after an appeal for help in The Crow last month, a new management committee has been formed and will get down to the serious business of planning the three-day event.
Graham Palmer, chairman of the management committee, said: "We have a very enthusiastic team in place with a wide range of skill sets.
