Those attending will be able to see art, fine art, graphics, print and textile designs. A fashion show, live music and an awards ceremony will also take place.

Emma Connolly, course co-ordinator for the level four art foundation course, said: “An independent moderator came to see us and they said that our students aren’t scared to explore new ways of working and they make work with well purpose. Every single person on my specific course will be progressing onto degree programmes and art courses at places in London, Brighton and Cambridge, therefore this event will be a chance for the public to see the next generation of top artists here in Ipswich, before they go away and make a name for themselves elsewhere.”

One of the artists whose work will be on display is Becky Harrison, 19, from Stowmarket. She is going to Falmouth to study creative advertising and she recently created a logo for a domestic abuse charity in Ipswich called Open Up.

Inspired by this project, she created a mock campaign for the organisation called Women’s Aid.

She said: “I wanted to create a campaign based on domestic abuse centred around the idea of the happy family – so I decided to use family games like Cluedo and Monopoly as the backdrop to my work.”

Other exhibits will include efforts from Olly Simpson, 19, who lives near Snape. He is off to the London College of Fashion in September and created a range of clothes using recycled fabrics from plastic bottles. And Jess Blake, also 19, from Ipswich will be showing magical designs based around Tarot cards before she heads off to the Cambridge School of Visual Performing Arts in the autumn to start a degree programme in which she has gained a scholarship.

Over the Christmas and New Year period we all struggle to keep a lid on our waste - the food bin groans under the weight of turkey carcasses and our blue recycling bulges with empty boxes from trikes and new games consoles so the last thing you want is to miss your rubbish collection.

With Christmas around the corner, Suffolk has retail temp jobs a plenty - but which jobs in other sectors are getting increasingly tough to fill?

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
