2020 Festival

Welcome to the 2020 Royston Arts Festival.

The 2020 festival was held entirely online owing to the Covid virus. To listen to a short introduction by Carl Filby, Chair of Creative Royston, please click HERE.

The full festival programme is shown below though not all of it is still available.   You will find details of all the MusicFest concerts brought together on that website.

Most of the videos are located on YouTube so the experience you have with adverts etc.. (hopefully minimal) will be determined by the type of YouTube account you have – though you don’t need one to view! Tip: Everything sounds and looks a whole lot better if you use the full screen and maybe attach a soundbar or amp & speakers, or use headphones!
