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.
"Already 2010 looks set to be a landmark year for the festival. We still need more people to help organise events and work as assistants before and during the festival but we have big plans, it's a case of watch this space," he said.
A ten-strong committee has been formed to work on the programme for this year's festival, which will run from September 23 - 26.
