CROW country residents are being asked to vote on a theme for this year's Royston Arts Festival.
As reported in The Crow last week, the Arts Festival will go ahead this year after a new management committee was formed to save it.
And in a major departure from previous years, the new team at the festival want to encourage participants to focus their events around a single idea as much as possible by setting an overall theme for the three-day event.
Arts Festival chairman Graham Palmer said: "Having a themed event opens up all sorts of exciting possibilities.
"It's something other festivals have done successfully. We want the festival to belong to the people of Royston and that's why we're asking them to choose the theme," he added.
The three themes on the short list are; Friends. Rivals. Enemies, Beneath the surface, and Who RU.
- 1 New mayor elected in historic moment for Royston Town Council
