Royston MusicFest is part of Royston Arts Festival which is run by Creative Royston a not-for-profit organisation funded by local businesses and other sponsors. If you want to know more about Creative Royston or Royston Arts Festival just click HERE.
In 2020 Royston MusicFest was scheduled to take place on the afternoon of Sunday 2oth September. There would have been no Gala Concert this year as it was realised in 2019 that it just made for too long a day for the performers and probably a lot of the audience as well!
Owing to the restrictions on movement and social contact imposed by the Govt in response to the Corona virus (Covid-19) and the continuing uncertainty regarding the ability of venues to host live music we are now planning to hold a series of specially commissioned video concerts spread over a few days during the festival which runs from 18th to 27th September.
Information for performers: If the traditional event had taken place Creative Royston would have covered ‘expenses’ for each performer paid at a flat rate of £25 (e.g. £50 for a duo, £75 for a trio etc…) in return for performing 2 sets of between 45-60 minutes. The venues manage their own events on the day of the performance and are responsible for ensuring that Public Liability and other necessary insurances are in place along with appropriate health and safety measures including sufficient staff and security arrangements.
