Cass Summer Show 2018

Exhibition of work by The Cass students in a variety of disciplines, running from 22 June to 5 July 2018.

Cass Summer Show: Friday 22 June to Thursday 5 July 2018

Tickets available on Eventbrite for this exciting end-of-year exhibition showcasing the very best of The Cass student work.

The Cass Summer Show, from 22 June to 5 July, sees students from all of London Met's art, architecture and design courses exhibiting their best work from the year. This year's free exhibition is set to be the most ambitious and extensive yet, with graduating students from all The Cass's disciplines displaying their creative work across the School's Calcutta House complex in Aldgate for the first time.

The School plans to make the most of the location, weather permitting, by arranging the closure of Aldgate's Old Castle Street to create an outside exhibition space between the buildings for the evening. This annual event is the biggest in the University's calendar, and regularly attracts up to 2,000 people on the opening night to celebrate the success and creativity of our graduating students.

The Summer Show kicks off with a private viewing on Thursday 21 June, from 3pm to 9.30pm. The extended private view day will include a series of prize-giving ceremonies for art, architecture and design students, which begins at 3.30pm and leads up to the launch party at 6pm in the evening.

Other events

During the exhibition period, there will be a variety of other events, including a Livery Company awards ceremony for Upholstery and Furniture students on 27 June at 6pm, as well as performances, workshops and events for prospective applicants.

On Tuesday 26 June from 8am to 10am a special Employer/ Alumni Breakfast will offer a combination of guided tours of the exhibition and networking opportunities over coffee and croissants. If you would like to attend this event please email Anne Markey:

Students considering joining The Cass in 2019 can visit the school on Saturday 30 June from 11am to 3pm, where they can meet staff and students and tour the workshops at an undergraduate and postgraduate Open Day. Book here to attend.
