  We have a varied programme and always welcome new members. We had a hugely successful run of the 2015 Royston Town Pantomime Cinderella in January 2015. Our Autumn 2014 production of The Fosdyke Saga Bill and Sylviafor the Royston Arts Festival was warmly received and even attracted the attention of the legendary Bill Tidy, on whose cartoon strip it was based. The Great Man (seen right at the Old Bull, Royston, with his daughter Sylvia) attended the Friday night performance along with his family, and was gracious enough to praise both cast and crew for bringing new life to the show!

In 2013 and 2014 we presented a one-act comedy Turn to Face the Change by local author Peter Hawes.  We performed at the Cambridge Drama Festival 2013, the Welwyn Drama Festival 2013 and the Sawston Drama Festival 2014, and won several awards and glowing adjudication for our efforts!
During the past few years we have also presented The Importance of Being Earnest for the 2011 Royston Arts Festival, the spectacular musical show Return to the Forbidden Planet in 2012, and in 2013 the hugely popular Little Shop of Horrors.  And of course every year there's the Royston Town Pantomime - oh yes there is!
