The event is the College's annual extravaganza of all things creative.

It allows Highbury's art, design, fashion, floristry and digital media students show off their work on one evening.

It took a huge amount of work by both staff and students and demonstrated not only their incredible talent but also the passion and pride of our students. They were so excited to showcase their work, which everyone agreed, was a very high standard. We have the most passionate, talented and professional students and we are immensely proud of them.
