The society’s annual exhibition will be opening at the town’s Lower King Street heritage base on Saturday, and runs through until Tuesday, July 26.

It’s the first time that the society, which was first established in 1978 and today has more than 100 members, has staged its showcase at the museum.

Museum curator Jenny Oxley said: “The exhibition will be a great opportunity to see artworks by local amateur and professional artists, showing off the wealth of talent Royston has to offer.

“There will be a variety of art on display from watercolours to mixed media, paintings to prints.
