TALENTED art and design students are showcasing their work as part of a college’s degree show.

Work from students at Cleveland College of Art and Design is now on display after the degree show was officially launched on Thursday night.

Over the next week record crowds are expected to flock to the Hartlepool campus site to see the exhibitions created by students doing degrees in costume, props and set design, photography, fashion, graphics, illustration, moving image, textiles and applied arts.

It is an annual event which showcases final work from all graduating students at the dedicated University Level Campus, in Church Square, Hartlepool.

The Degree Show 2014 opened to the public on Friday and runs until Saturday, June 14, in the main CCAD Buildings.

College bosses say the show has been growing in both reputation and visitor numbers each year and is expected to attract more than 7,000 people through its doors over the duration of the 10 days, with 1,800 attending on the opening night.

As well as exhibiting in the main building on Church Square the college has also opened up the Municipal Building to the public, with the old council chamber being used for the photography exhibition.

The exhibition also extends to Christ Church where there is a costume exhibition.

This showcase is on for an extended period until Saturday, June 28, and includes the costumes for the World War One project worked on this academic year.

There is also a film screening at Vue Cinema on Monday, June 9, at 6pm where a showreel of work from creative film and moving image production students can be viewed.

Admission to the main exhibition is free.

Opening times for the exhibitions are available via the website
