Sunday 7th July – Put it in your diary!

The deadline for our Cover Art Competition has now passed but there is still plenty of time to enter our Creative Writing Competition the subject of our previous post below.
We are also delighted to announce that we are staging another concert on Sunday 7th July with a bunch of brilliant and very experienced musicians playing as Tin Giants‘, supported by a highly-regarded young duo, Elizabeth and Jameson  who have been building a great reputation over the last year.
Details of the concert can be found on the poster on the left (just click to enlarge or click on artist name above for more info on them) and you can book an advance ticket at the remarkably cheap price of £10 (£12 on the door) by clicking on the icon below. 
The concert rounds off what we think will be a brilliant day’s entertainment in Royston which stages an Historical Pageant in Priory Memorial Gardens. Creative Royston has provided some support in the form of advice and website resource, plus a bit of practical assistance, but the main credit for that event lies elsewhere and more details can be found by clicking on the poster to the right. PLUS, there will be a unique opportunity to see the 24-metre long Royston Tapestry worked in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry. It has been 30 years in the making and will be unveiled in its final form for the first time on this weekend – click on the poster on the right for more details … and if that isn’t enough, you can also visit Royston Arts Society’s Members Exhibition at Royston Museum where you can also buy any of the paintings on display.
