Museum Musings: Christmas Comes To Royston Museum

Local drama group CADS have been busy putting together a cabaret-style evening of entertainment for the Royston & District Museum & Art Gallery.

Organised by CADS regular Kathy Young, the evening is entitled ‘A Christmas Miscellany’ and all proceeds will go to the Friends of the Museum. The show features a mixture of poems, songs and sketches relating to the festive season, intermingled with readings from the Crow that describe Christmases in Royston over the years, all performed by members of the group.

A Christmas Miscellany is being performed at the museum on Wednesday 4th December and the show starts at 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm). Entry price includes a glass of mulled wine (or mulled apple juice if you prefer) and a mince pie. Tickets are £10 each and can be bought at the Museum or the Town Hall, or by ringing 01763 242587, but please note that numbers are strictly limited so it’s as well to book early.

As well as the Museum event, CADS is also preparing for the perennially popular Royston Town Pantomime, to be performed in January 2020. The show this time is Jack and the Beanstalk, to be directed by Nicky Paton (in between his many other roles including managing Royston Cave and sitting on the committee of the Arts Festival) with musical direction once again by Louise Atkins. If you’d like to get involved, there are lots of opportunities apart from the acting roles. These include make-up, costume, props, lighting, sound, set building and front of house.
