Creative Arts Festival

Events and Open Days

The 2017 Creative Arts Festival was the result of months of hard work and preparation where our visual and performing arts and media students showed off their creative talents in a series of shows and exhibitions.

Our Music showcase, an artistic expression by solo, small ensemble and bands celebrated multiple genres of music.

Performing Arts students gave us drama in ‘How to Disappear’ depicting a man's struggle to get lost in a world of surveillance. ‘Love and Information’, by world celebrated playwright Caryl Churchill was a series of scenes simultaneously interconnected and standalone. Ella Hickson's ‘Boys’, a modern coming of age play dealing with suicide. Lastly ‘Network part 1’ and ‘Network part 2’, a series of interlinked one act plays examined human behaviour and how emotion can make us behave in ways society would deem less than appropriate... but oh so funny to watch!

Level 3 and HND students' dance show was a spectacular array of contemporary and street style productions, while the Specialist Makeup students showcased stunning creations in their graduate show 'Mirage', featuring spellbinding makeup, costumes, hairstyling, special effects, prosthetics and body painting.

Finally Art, Design and Media students exhibited their work in a visual delight of sculpture work, installation art, photography, 3D design and costume design.

West Thames College graduates who studied these courses include award winning ‘The Secret Life of Boys’ actor Neil Reynolds, ‘People Just Do Nothing’ co-creators and actors Asim Chaudhry and Hugo Chegwin, Textiles and Materials designer for Rolls Royce, Cherica Haye and professional dancer Harry Parr.
