2019 Event submissions

The theme for this year’s festival is Our Planet  and we have chosen this theme in order to highlight the environmental and climate issues facing our planet but also to allow other participants the opportunity to take a different approach if they wish, for example by celebrating the wonders of our planet.

The new festival committee will be meeting this week to start the serious work behind staging the 2019 festival. At present, it is hoped to include all the usual events staged by Creative Royston including, MusicFest, a Film Festival, a Community Event in Priory Gardens and the Finale Concert.

We  are also now accepting accepting submissions for the 2019 festival.  Details of how to submit an entry and also how to apply for seed-funding can be found on the Organise an Event page.  The deadline for submissions and seed-funding is midnight on 26th April 2019.

We hope all our colleagues in arts and crafts groups in and around Royston and from further afield will take this opportunity to submit an event for the 2019 festival and help make it a big success.

New Creative Royston Management Committee

A new  Creative Royston Management Committee for 2019 was elected at the AGM on Monday 4th February and details can be  viewed HERE. Our 2019 Annual Report, a review of which was a central focus of the AGM, can also be viewed HERE.

The next date for your diary is our Arts Quiz on Friday 1st March, 7.30-10pm at the Old Bull Inn, Royston.  Questions will be arts-based but also falling into the ‘General Knowledge’ category so no need for any specialist knowledge. Tickets are £5 per person, including snacks, for teams up to 6 people with lots of prizes and a raffle. It would be very helpful if you could please email Carl Filby if you are interested in entering a team or wish to join a team, which can be arranged.
