ACTOR Roy Hudd, television archaeologist Carenza Lewis and photographer Eamonn McCabe are among a host of well-known names selected by Suffolk College to receive honorary degrees.

The trio, along with actors Nigel Havers, Amanda Donohoe, and Nicholas Nickleby, Ipswich Borough Council chief executive James Hehir, and novelist and critic Julie Myerson, will receive the accolades on October 31 at a ceremony at Trinity Park.

The ceremony will also see the college's last higher education students receiving their degrees, following the inception of University Campus Suffolk.

Honorary degrees are awarded to individuals with a national or international reputation, those who have made a significant contribution to Ipswich or Suffolk, or those with a strong connection to the county.
