Leeds Town Hall was again the prestigious location for more than 450 art and design students graduating from Leeds Arts University at an official graduation ceremony held on 5 July 2018.

Students graduated from the University’s BA (Hons) degree courses in: Animation, Creative Advertising, Fashion, Fine Art, Graphic Design, Illustration, Photography, Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design, and Visual Communication.

The day also marked the awarding of the University’s second honorary Master of Arts degree, which was presented to internationally published cartoonist and writer Darryl Cunningham. Daryl is an alumnus of the University, having studied there between 1980-1983.

Celebrations continued afterwards at the Town Hall, where students enjoyed ice cream, popcorn and candyfloss and their traditional ride on the golden carousel.
