Our Performing Arts and Production Arts students put on a series of high-quality performances. In the past year the shows have included Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and Rock of Ages. For students who want to be involved in performances, but don’t take performance-related subjects, there are numerous opportunities including the choir, theatre and dance companies.
Art & Design Show
The Summer Show gives Art and Design students the chance to showcase their work in an exhibition as part of their final assessment. As well as the experience of showing off their work to the public in person, their pieces are showcased online. You can view the gallery containing work from all the art courses available at Priestley College here
For musicians keen on performing live there are a number of opportunities including taking to the stage in the Viola Beach Café. There are chances to perform acoustic sets and open mic sessions.
