Royston Arts Festival gets fully under way on Thursday with a talk by local Crime Writer Amanda Brittany who will be giving a talk followed by a Q&A session and a book signing.

You can buy her latest novel ‘Island House’ and get her signature at the same time, or perhaps borrow it from Royston Library who are hosting the event and had a few copies available to borrow last time I looked.

You get a free glass of wine included for the cost of a mere £5 and tickets can be purchased direct from Royston Library. You can’t lose really and what a great way to brighten up the evening now the nights are drawing in.

7.15 for a 7.30 start – tickets may be available on the door, but best to purchase in advance.
