PERFORMING arts students from North Hertfordshire College shone at an opening ceremony for the UK's biggest national college event.

The National Association of Colleges Conference was held in Birmingham and the Comet country students performed a piece called Mosaic in front of a 1,000-strong crowd.

The opening performance was choreographed by college lecturer Geni Ollerearnshaw and incorporated snapshots of contemporary and Indian classical dance.

This was followed by a rendition of Seasons of Love sung by 18 members of the student choir, arranged by music lecturer Ben Wiles.
