Summer Festival celebrates Yarmouth students’ work

HUNDREDS of visitors helped celebrate students’ hard work and achievements in the first Summer Festival at Great Yarmouth College.

The open event at the end of June showcased students’ achievements college-wide with exhibitions, demonstrations and displays across the Southtown campus for visitors to enjoy across five days.

The end-of-year art and design show pulls in the crowds every year but this year the festival offered opportunities for students in all study areas to showcase their work and take pride in its display.

The college arts hub Studios 1, 2 and 3 was packed with visitors for its private view of the media shows, art, design and photography, textile and fashion exhibitions.

Throughout the next few days organised school tours gave students at local high schools a taste of what life as a college student would be like and the standards they could achieve.

And visitors dropped in to tour the exhibitions and view the college’s new facilities.

Construction students showed examples of their trade skills in workshops in the �6m Kier Building, home of the School of Construction and Manufacturing Technologies.
