architecture, the entire show is organised and created by students working

Among those exhibiting this year are the first graduates from Fashion
Design. Some of the graduates have been working at London Fashion Week and have
taken up placements with industry names such as Superdry and Paul
The open evening for the Art and Design Degree Show 2017 at Hardwick campus
is on Friday 2 June from 6 - 9pm. The exhibition will be open to the public from

Angus Pryor, Head of School for Art and Design at the
University of Gloucestershire, said: "The Hardwick campus is hosting an amazing show of
work in celebration of the School of Art & Design’s graduating students and
shows their finest work; the culmination of three years of study, creative
development and hard work. It is an opportunity to share their work with
friends, family, the public and potential employers. It is one of Cheltenham’s
major annual events, it’s always stimulating and we look forward to welcoming
visitors from all over the country."
