Community Arts Event in Priory Memorial Gardens 1.00 – 4.00pm FREE ENTRY
Creative Royston

The beauty, diversity and vulnerability of our amazing planet provides a wonderful theme for the popular Priory Gardens event this year which we hope will prove a little thought provoking and educational alongside all the creative fun.

The main stage will have a variety of performances throughout the afternoon whilst stalls and workshops will provide hands-on activities and information on the theme.

LIMITLESS ACADEMY OF PERFORMING ARTS: Newly opened in Royston, Limitless are delighted to present songs from their fabulous production of “Oliver” at Hertford Theatre from 31st October – 2nd November this Autumn. And that’s not all! As a centre of excellence for training in the dramatic arts, they will also be performing a variety of solos and acoustic numbers. At their stall in Priory Gardens you can see what else Limitless Aceademy can offer you… it really is LIMITLESS! www.limitlessacademyarts.com

THE WILD MAN OF THE WOODS: will be here to enchant you with his mysterious and fascinating stories about everything to do with trees and their folklore, with accompanying songs and music.
