Leeds City College hosts its biggest Enterprise Festival for 2018

Fabrice Teston, who was featured on BBC One’s recent episode of Rip off Britain discussing artisan bread, was one of the Leeds City College staff assisting students at the Enterprise Festival on Thursday 10 May 2018.

It was the college’s fifth annual event and took place between 9am and 5pm at Trinity Leeds. Students from across the college had merchandise stalls and activities to keep shoppers entertained throughout the day. Activities included health MOTs from the School of Sport Science & Exercise, Foundation Studies students were selling plants they’d grown themselves. The School of Business & IT were printing 3D keyrings, while the School of Creative Styling & Wellbeing were delighting visitors with festival makeovers.

Shoppers were kept entertained throughout the day by unexpected flash mob dancers from Creative Arts students, including dancers from Leeds East Academy. Shoppers were also treated to melodic singing at Trinity Kitchen during lunch, a nail design station and relaxing neck massages. There was plenty to see and do. Students had a great day embracing the opportunity to gain experience and demonstrate their skills and talents.  

Karen Johnson, Head of Enterprise, Employability & Events at Leeds City College, said: “It was great to show the people of Leeds what our students have to offer.

“A range of our courses were brought to life, from IT and computer games, to creative arts, sport, travel and food and drink.

“It was a fantastic way for our students to experience working in their chosen field. It was also an opportunity for potential students to get a taster of what the college has to offer and see the courses in action.”

Dan Wharton, Marketing Manager at Trinity Leeds, said: “It was fantastic to welcome Leeds City College back to Trinity Leeds for another jam-packed Enterprise Festival. We’re sure shoppers showed their support just as they have in previous years. It’s always a pleasure to give these talented students a platform and help showcase their skills.”
