Autumn Exhibitions

The Royston Arts Society Autumn Exhibition will take place in Royston Town Hall on the weekend of 23rd to 25th September 2022 and will form a major part of Royston Arts Festival. This will be a streamlined exhibition that will concentrate on the display and sale of paintings and cards without refreshments, catalogues or raffle tickets. We will also be running an optional online exhibition, starting on 1st October and running through to 1st December 2022. Artists can enter some or all of their paintings (but not cards) into this online exhibition but we will not accept entries solely for the online exhibition.

Helpers

These new arrangements will reduce the number of people we will need to staff the exhibition when it is open to the public. We will however need the same number of volunteers to set up the exhibition and take it down again at the end. If you can spare some time to help out at the exhibition then please click on the link below and fill in the online helper’s form. Link to Online Helper’s Form
