Liverpool Screen School’s annual degree show has become something of a tradition, with guests invited along to watch, view and read coursework highlights and performances for the fourth year in a row tonight.

Students from LJMU’s Creative Writing, Drama, Film Studies, Media Production and Journalism degree courses all had their efforts displayed, with many coming to view and appreciate their combined offerings, as well as join in with interactive elements.

LSS Director, Professor Rachel McLean, welcomed everyone to the Redmonds Building, expressing her thanks for all the hard work which had been put in by students and staff, encouraging people to consider sticking around in the city after they graduate.

Chief among the visitors were Radio City DJ, Pete Price, and Liverpool’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, who told JMU Journalism upon his arrival: “I am sure the show is going to be great because young people are very talented, with the kind of skills that I wasn’t brought up with when I was a lad. We need people with real skills who know how to tell a story.”

Journalism Programme Leader, Jackie Newton, said: “It’s always a bittersweet moment coming to the end of the academic year, as we say farewell to another group of graduates, with high hopes that they can translate their success at university into the world of work.

“We wish them all the very best of luck, and hope that they will keep in touch as their careers progress.”
