The creative hub of East London, the Old Truman Brewery arts and media quarter on Brick Lane, plays host once more to the UK’s largest graduate art, design and fashion show, Free Range on Friday 10th June. Held over five weeks, thousands of students will exhibit their work across six disciplines: art, design, illustration, photography, architecture and interior design.

The exhibition, now in its 16th year, showcases the breadth of work being produced by the UK’s top young creatives – both to the public and to the creative industries on the lookout to find the best in up-and-coming talent. Free Range has become a crucial part of London’s cultural calendar and organisers believe this year’s will be the biggest and the best to date with the inclusion of the new sixth category, Illustration.
