The Gala Concert will be headlined by Thursday’s Band who will be preceded by a selection of acts from the above – with one or two ‘surprises’ and possibly a jamming session or two thrown in.
Access – Venues 2, 6 and 8 have level access and disabled toilets, however we recommend that you contact venues directly for full information.
On the following Sunday September 30th, the final day of Royston Arts Festival, ‘MusicFest Extra’ will consist of two FREE concerts taking place at Banyers House and The Old Courthouse roughly between 12.30-5.00pm and will feature Jason Betley, Max Bianco, Rich Keam, Ed Tattersall &  Zoe Wren.
The printed MusicFest programme is available in all venues and the Library in town but unfortunately was printed before the Green Man pulled out at the last minute for ‘commercial reasons’. There is also one other error. The Boxwood Chessmen play the Jolly Postie at 16.15 and Red Velvet at 15.30.
There are no more slots available for performers this year but do look out for infomation about Royston MusicFest ’19 in October/November.
