Students welcomed their families, friends and college governors and executive team members to see their completed portfolio of work at the college’s Derby Road-based Visual Art and Design Centre.

Guests were able to see exhibitions of students’ work, some of which were interactive and learners were on-hand to talk to guests about their projects and how they’ve succeeded on their programmes of study.

Musical theatre students took to the stage to deliver their performance of ‘Here Come The Girls’ – which showcased well-known songs and scenes from contemporary musical theatre shows.

This exhibition evening launched the start of a week-long programme where members of the public can visit the college to see the students’ work for themselves. In addition to seeing students’ work on show, there is an opportunity for people to see another show in the Create Theatre.

Performed by year two acting students, on 16 June at 7.30pm, ‘Widows’ by Ariel Doreman with Tony Kushner, is a tale set in a war-torn village in Greece in 1942.

Head of creative industries and digital technologies, Steve McAlone, said: “The festival is the culmination of the vision and talent of our students and we’re proud of their success within their chosen art.

“Our curriculum embraces the latest technological developments as well as traditional creative crafts and performance and technical skills. Guests to this exhibition can see this vast range of expertise that our students will go on to use in further studies and careers within the creative and digital technologies industries.”
