The event drew to a close the exhibition ‘It’s Our Exhibition 2014’, which ran all week at the campus.

The exhibition also included the range of fashion garments, which had been a part of the fashion shows held this year at Elme Hall Hotel.

Also on the night, awards were presented to budding 11-16 year-old designers and photographers who entered three competitions run by the college’s Visual Arts Department.
