Royston is in for a real treat over the coming days as the town’s annual arts festival gets into gear.
This year the theme of Royston Arts Festival, which starts tomorrow, is Illumination, and there will be plenty of activities to lighten up the mood in town, with many activities free of charge.
Les Baker, the spokesman for Creative Royston, the organisation which runs the festival, said: “Everything is in its place. It seems as though we are going to have another successful festival.
“We have involved the whole community, from youngsters to pensioners.
“It’s just a case of making sure everything is all right on the night.”

The fanfare for the festival will be provided by the Blue Skies Big Band in a concert at Royston Methodist Church presented by the Royston Fringe in association with the town’s Rotary Club.
There will be more music on Saturday – street sounds in the town centre as buskers play in Market Square, and as the sun goes down over Priory Memorial Gardens when Royston Town Band will play a twilight concert.
