COSTUME degree students showcased their talents at an end-of term degree show in Scarborough.

The theatrically-staged show featured the work of first, second and third year students and was held at Yorkshire Coast College’s Westwood campus.

Costumes were designed around characters from plays and each one had a performance linked to it, with performing arts and music students also getting involved.

Course leader Emma Renhard said: “It was a brilliant evening and I think it was the best show yet.

“The students have had lots of positive feedback and interest from industry professionals, so it was a great success.”

She added that course patrons, designer Jenny Bevin and costumier Jane Law were also at the event. Jenny has designed costumes for The King’s Speech and Sherlock Holmes, among many other productions, and Jane has recently been working on Pirates of the Caribbean.
