Students of the creative arts can often struggle to get noticed. That's where Free Range steps in. It's a seven week extravaganza that showcases what British graduate art has to offer. It features over 70 shows and 3,000 graduates. A full catalogue of events can be found here.

The exhibition is split into sections, starting with fashion, followed by design, photography, art and then architecture. All of these exhibitions are free.

This is the largest graduate arts fair in the UK with over 50 universities and art colleges participating. It's been  going since 2001 and is an established annual event that last year attracted over 100,000 visitors.

It's a rare chance to see creative minds when they are still finding their feet and establishing their signature styles.

Free Range is on at the Old Truman Brewery, 91-95 Brick Lane, E1 6QL from 28 May to 16 July. Entrance to all exhibitions is free.
