On behalf of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), the Faculty of Culture and Creative Industries is excited to announce the second year of the Lancashire Arts Festival, showcasing the amazing talents of our creative students. This year’s festival includes an extensive programme of degree shows, performances and events, open for a range of visitors, from prospective students interested in a career in creative industries, to business people who are keen to engage with UCLan’s creative talent. 

Students from Architecture, Design, Fashion, Fine Art and Media will exhibit their work in various buildings across the campus, launching to the public on Thursday 14 June at 6.30pm, in our Private View event. Following this, the degree shows will be presented daily, 10.00am – 5.00pm, from Friday 15 June until Friday 22 June, for any member of the public who would like to come along and view the exciting and unique work the students have produced.

Our Performance and Media students have arranged a diverse programme of events, including a two-day music festival, Future Sound, taking place on Friday 11 May until Sunday 13 May. There are also a number of contemporary performances taking place throughout May. View further information regarding all of our events. (link through to the event listings).

If you are a decision maker in a fashion, textile or lifestyle related business, you may be interested in attending our fashion show as previewed at Graduate Fashion Week in London. View our Fashion Show event listing for more information.

The Faculty of Culture and the Creative Industries have five schools that offer a vibrant range of subjects. Our students and staff work creatively and collaboratively across this exciting range of disciplines to open up new avenues to explore and new opportunities for learning. The Lancashire Arts Festival is a great opportunity for prospective students to explore how they can get involved.

We hope you enjoy our Lancashire Arts Festival and look forward to welcoming you to UCLan. It’s going to be amazing!
