As part of the regional Traditional Hertfordshire project, Royston & District Museum & Art Gallery are holding an exhibition and associated events about local folklore and traditions at the Museum in October-November 2017.

Attached below is a copy of the text panels from the exhibition.

Do you have any interesting tales about local legends or traditions you would like to share with us?  Please let us know in the comments.  We’re also looking for people who would be willing to share their stories and have them recorded for posterity for the museum collections, to be used in this exhibition and future ones.
