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.

A three-car collision between the Copdock roundabout and Wherstead caused three miles of traffic jams on the A14, just outside Ipswich.

A programme to turn around Suffolk’s special education needs (SEN) provision has been outlined – with an “innovative” pilot set to spearhead the measures.

The concept of time has baffled great thinkers for thousands of years.

A former motorbike showroom in Bury St Edmunds could be turned into a mix of retail units and flats.

Two drivers had a lucky escape near Newmarket after a collision left their vehicles badly damaged.

Millennials face an ‘impossible task’ buying a first house first home in Ipswich, with the average starter home in the town costing £60,000 more than the national average.

They were a mainstay of 1950s and 60s Britain who, in the days before 24-hour convenience stores and online shopping, provided an unrivalled doorstep service.
