There is a new focus on one main weekend with plenty of events, exhibitions and workshops, many based around our ‘Carnival’ theme. Our ‘Carnival Day’ is on Saturday 24th September with a procession and lots of activities in Priory Gardens. On Sunday 25th, Royston MusicFest ’16 will comprise 30+ FREE mini-concerts and our Finale Concert will end the festival in the traditional manner.

In the meantime, have a look at the article in last week’s (4th Aug) Crow newspaper –  Crow Carnival Page  or click on the icon for our provisional flyer which has more info and some timings and check out the newly available short film excerpt on the 2015 festival which is part of a film on Royston commissioned by Royston First – just click on their image on the left.
