Eight colleges are performing in Emerge 2017 being staged at the Platform Theatre and Bar at Central St Martins on Saturday June 3rd.

Sheffield College students will perform a series of songs from popular musicals. The free event aims to showcase the work of students completing the UAL awarding body’s music and performing arts qualifications.

Tom Fields, Curriculum Leader for Drama, The Sheffield College, said: “It’s an honour for our students to have been selected to showcase their skills in this prestigious, inaugural event. We are proud to be involved.”

Student Ellysia Gough, 16, said: “Taking part in this festival makes me feel really happy. It gives me the chance to perform in London, which is something I've always wanted to do.”

She added: “The Sheffield College is a great place to study, socialise and meet new people. I love the performing arts course. It’s something I've wanted to do ever since I was little. I find it easy to express myself through the performing arts.”

The Sheffield College Hillsborough campus, on Livesey Street, offers extended diploma and degree level performing arts qualifications in the latest multi-million pound facilities.
