Showstopper winners: Katherine Crean, Emily Lawrie, Amber Lloyd and Abbie-Louise Small

Our new BA Graphic Communication students (guided by lecturers David and Ian) took a trip around the sights and sounds of Cardiff City Centre and Cardiff Bay, helping orientate some of our new arrivals to what the City has to offer. A good time was had by all!
