The VeXeD festival saw an exhibition of art and design work from students across a range of creative courses including fine art, fashion, textiles, illustration, graphic design, games design, photography, fashion promotion, model making, visual effects and animation.

The event is the highest attended on the college calendar and this year people were able to livestream the festival via the newly-launched WSC TV live broadcast.

Many of the second year level three and foundation diploma students are now progressing to prestigious universities across the UK, including Glasgow School of Art, Chelsea, Central Saint Martins, London College of Fashion, Camberwell, Falmouth, Nottingham Trent, Leeds, Norwich and University of Suffolk on the West Suffolk College campus.

The evening also saw live performances from the college music department performed by students on level three and level four music courses.
