A record number of students attended Bishop Auckland College’s Fresher’s Fair as the new term got underway. The event included ‘Student Conference’ and a ‘Music Festival’ as well as showcasing the National Citizenship Service who are based at the College, Auckland Academy, Kynren and much more.
Once the conference finished students were invited to enjoy activities outside, free food for all students and we even had live music. The music department organised some fantastic acts, we had current music students past and present plus a guest rapper from Nottingham, Challan Carmichael.
Returning and current students included Dean Hutchinson, Liam Samson took to the stage followed by Andrew Lockey and Chloe Morgan and HND music student Craig Roddam, who won TFM Big Audition. His prize is to perform in front of 10,000 people at the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle in December. Craig played his own songs from his new EP recorded at the College and covers by Ed Sheeran and Kings of Leon.
