2023 art and design degree show guide

We’ve created a guide to the UK undergraduate art and design showcases taking place this summer

As art and design graduates around the UK gear up to present their very best work, we’ve assembled a guide to undergraduate shows taking place across the country in the next few months. We suggest checking the links for specific details on presentation formats and opening times, as many showcases will be closed over the late May bank holiday weekend.

There are more shows yet to be confirmed so we’ll be updating this list on a rolling basis. If your BA degree show or one you know of isn’t listed, let us know through social media or email a member of the editorial team so we can add it in.
