Food and drink stands will be available from 6pm to 10pm.

Stephen Hollis, music course leader at the college, said: "Since Mayfly was launched a few years ago it has grown bigger and bigger each year.

"Our students not only perform but also help organise the event.

"It is a fantastic night for them to show off their skills and prepare them for a career in the music industry."
