It was smiles all around for the people of Royston after what was hailed a ‘tremendously successful’ arts festival drew to a close on Sunday.
Organisers put on an event to remember with a packed 10 days of activities arranged around the town for Royston Arts Festival.
Creative Royston put the programme together, and afterwards chairman Claire Somerville said: “The 2015 festival has been a tremendous success.
“Thousands of people have attended events and activities across the town and the ‘illumination’ theme inspired a wealth of fun activities, performances and exhibitions.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved, especially all the volunteers without whom the festival would not happen.”
