Banff and Buchan College students will showcase their work in creative arts and floristry at the annual students exhibition on May 30 and 31.

The event will take place in the atrium of the newly refurbished main college campus on Henderson Road, Fraserburgh. This exhibition is open to the public and there will be opportunities to purchase unique pieces from the exhibits.
