Pupils at Tannery Drift First School have taken part in a workshop to create entries that could be used on the cover of this this year’s Royston Arts Festival programme.

The competition is run by arts festival organisers Creative Royston who are hoping for lots of entries to judge.

The workshop was attended by schoolchildren aged five to nine years who put forward many ideas, including being inspired by St George’s Day, travel and the sea.

Kirsten Grimmer, chairperson of Creative Royston, said: “The enthusiasm shown by many of our local schools and students of all ages is phenomenal. Seeing schools like Tannery run workshops and Greneway and Icknield Walk actively encourage involvement truly validates all the work that our volunteers put into not only our competitions but the festival as a whole.”

Anna Greetham, Head of Tannery Drift First School said: “We are very proud of our creative curriculum and children get many opportunities to explore and experience high quality dance, drama, music and art. We are delighted to be able to once again work with Creative Royston to support the arts festival.”

The competitio, which closes tomorrow at 2pm, is open to all schools in Royston and surrounding villages. Winners will be announced in due course with the final artwork being revealed in June.

The finished piece will be used to promote this year’s Royston Arts Festival, which takes place from September 28 to 30 and has the theme ‘voyages of discovery’.

The winning entries will be on display at Royston Library throughout September in the lead up to the festival weekend, culminating in an auction for charity.
