It is open to the public and music fans from the town are invited to hear a range of music styles.

Andrew Mahon, head of music at the college, said: “It is the biggest gig of the year for the students.

“It is their end of year final show. It will feature a real mix of music and they are going to be playing a lot of crowd-pleasing songs that people will recognise.”

Student Tyde Laybourn, who is helping to promote the event, said: “I was at the last gig in December at The Studio it was really successful.
