Following the green theme of recycling, pupils from local schools have turned their designer skills to making clothes from recycled materials. Highfield School, Knights Templar School, St Francis College and St Christopher School have joined forces for the past 11 years to put on this show, with the aim of encouraging talented art students.

They will also be raising money for charity. Student's costumes are made purely from recycled materials, anything from crisp bags to CDs, and this year's theme is the circus. The exhibition will be on display until March 18.
