Cheltenham Science Festival, Wednesday June 9 to Sunday June 13, Cheltenham Town Hall, Imperial Square, Cheltenham, Glos GL50 1QA

For the third year running, level one Graphic Design students from the University of Gloucestershire’s Pittville Studios will see their work exhibited at the Cheltenham Science Festival.
The 50 students have worked in pairs to create a personal response to the Festival theme of “Decadence”.  
Science Festival director, Sharon Bishop, says “Decadence is a provocative word: luxurious, sensuous and self-indulgent, a celebration of the good things in life but redolent of moral and social decline. Your opinion of what is decadent is determined by your own personal values and the society in which you live.’
The posters can be seen along the walkway between the back of the Town Hall and the tented festival venues in Imperial Gardens throughout the festival.
