Talented students showed off their skills in an End of Year Creative Arts Festival.

Hundreds of visitors, including the Mayor of Havering Cllr Eric Munday, turned out for the event at Havering College of Further and Higher Education.

The festival saw the next generation of designers, artists and performers displaying the culmination of their hard work.

Student Charity Turner attracted attention by dressing in costume as part of her installation which combined fashion, animation and art.

She said: “It is fantastic to see so many people interested in our work and ideas. It was especially nice to talk to the mayor about my own inspiration and ambitions.”

The mayor, who was accompanied by the Mayoress, his wife Peggy, chatted to students in the college’s £6million Centre of Creative Arts taking in a wide range of exhibits including jewellery, ceramics, furniture, Fine Art, Graphic Design, Music and Performing Arts.

Visitors were also treated to a fashion show and met Havering College Fashion degree graduate Yan Zhang – a winner at the prestigious Golden Shears Awards 2013.

Yan said: “It is exciting to come back to the college and see the innovative ways in which students are expressing their creative talent across all the arts.”
