Culture thrives

Culture is not dead yet in Royston! Not only is the Picture Palace reopening on 30th June (click on image @ right or below) but we also had the first new book shop in nearly 30 years, Bow Books, open up this month. We are also lucky to have a brand new radio station in Royston Radio (click on image @ right or below) as well as a range of established arts groups.

We also have an arts festival of course and plans are well developed to bring you another major event on the weekend of Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October and a day or two beforehand.

Our festival theme this year is ‘Force of Nature‘ and if you have an idea that can be developed rapidly to meet the copy deadline for our printed programme, around mid-July, then it is not too late to contact Chairperson Carl Filby using the email address to discuss. Details of how to submit an entry and also how to apply for seed-funding have been left on the Organise an Event page for the time being.
