Annie Kerfoot, Head of School for Creative & Digital said: “We are really proud to have supported the National Festival of Making for the third consecutive year – especially with the launch of the brand new Creative & Cultural Skills Hub.

“Thank you to everyone that took part in our activities – it was great to meet you all.

“We really hope you were able to see why Blackburn College is the first choice for so many students each and every year.”
