For over 160 years the College has exhibited the very best young talent from our range of leading art, design and media courses. This summer’s showcase is our biggest by far and promises to be a real celebration of our graduates' creativity and hard work.  Our annual Summer Shows which, once again, promise to be a series of exciting and colourful events that showcase the very best our students have to offer.”
