The FreshArts Fayre focuses on bringing forms of art like dance, fashion, music or art together, for interested students to encourage them to get involved in the local arts scene.

Craig Morrow, Artistic Director at the LPAC, said: “FreshArts Fayre is a fantastic opportunity for the local community and university to work together.

“It’s delightful to see young people taking control of the venue and making a real effort to engage with all students to who have a variety of interest and skills.”

Art-loving students can attend the event which will be held at the LPAC on the University of Lincoln campus (opposite the University Library) on Thursday September 17, running from 11am till 4pm.

Local musicians, the university’s musical theatre society, cheerleading society, and performers from the Oxjam Music Festival will all be putting on performances throughout the day.

Representatives from the Frequency Festival will also be present to give artsy lovers an opportunity and an outlet for their passion, looking for volunteers to help stage the October event across the city.

The fayre is currently in its third year, and is organised by the LPAC Producers, who regularly help organise events for the local arts calendar.
