For 2018 the plan is to split Royston MusicFest into 2 days of music all of which will be free to the public. The main Sunday will be on 23rd September, running from approximately 1.00pm to 5-5.30pm-ish in 7 venues with a Gala Concert in the evening at The Old Bull Inn running from approximately 7-10pm. ‘Royston MusicFest – Unplugged’ is provisionally planned for Sunday 30th September to coincide with the final day of the arts festival. It will also run between 1-5pm-ish and will take place in smaller venues which do not require amplification and consist mainly of solo performers with perhaps the occasional duo.
The 2017 MusicFest took place on Sunday 24th September and a selection of photos can be seen below.
There were 9 venues to choose from and a great choice of music – all FREE! The schedule for the day can be seen on the Royston MusicFest ’17 page (click on top menu) along with links to pages where you can find out more about the performers, one of which ‘The Trials of Cato’ recently won the Royston Folk Club Young Artists Competition – click on image to the right for more details.
