The college will be transformed into a huge exhibition hall that will showcase sculptures, prints, animations, photography, illustrations and much more.

Simone Wonnacott, principal of Leeds College of Art, said: “We are extremely proud of our significant history and heritage as a leading specialist art school.

“Visitors can even purchase artwork at the ‘art market’ which will be run by students.

“Our 170th anniversary is an exciting year.”
