WelcomeFest 2016: Fantastic!

Our annual WelcomeFest was again a success! Students explored their subject areas through talks and practical hands-on workshops in the morning, whilst the afternoon was more relaxed watching ex-student and X Factor contestant Joe Waller perform, followed by talented current music students performing for the chance to play on the Introducing stage at Butserfest.
