COMEDIENNE Jude Simpson is set for an appearance at this year's Royston Arts Festival - after a run at the Edinburgh Festival.

"We are excited that she is taking part," said Kathy Wholley, who has been co-ordinating the festival.

Jude's show, Growing Up Games, is described as exploring the status symbols used to define ourselves as grown-ups.

Meanwhile, organisers are looking for other acts to perform during the cabaret evening.
