2023 Festival Theme

The festival theme for 2023 is Force of Nature chosen because we wanted to have a theme connected to environmental issues but one that can also be interpreted in other ways. We hope that it will inspire participants and contributors to the festival as well as event organisers.

We  are now accepting accepting submissions for the 2023 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 Friday 28th April 2023.

You can still have your say in the festival by completing our (3-minute) survey. Just click the link below which will take you to the survey site.

Customer Survey

We have received quite a lot of responses so far, thank you, but the response limit for hosting of the survey on Survey Monkey has been reached beyond which we can’t see results without paying them quite a bit of money. If you are one of around 8 people who took the survey after 6.30pm on Tuesday 7th February via Survey Monkey we may not be able to see your answers and therefore ask you to kindly complete an identical survey using the above link to a different site and apologise for the inconvenience. Thank you.

The 2022 Annual Report is now made available for public consumption and you can read it by clicking on the icon at the left. If you have any questions about the content you are welcome to email Carl Filby who was elected as Chair for 2023 at the AGM – please email chair@creativeroyston.org.

The next news to watch out for is our choice for the festival theme, coming soon, and then in mid-February, we will be inviting submissions for the 2023 festival.
