On Sunday, at the North West Regional College Summer Jamm Pavilion, based at the Country Stage, at the Score Site at Canal Basin, the college will also be hosting a range of events. These include hairdressing and beauty therapy sessions and treatments, culinary challenges by the college hospitality department, joinery staff will have activities suitable for all ages and early years staff will be showcasing their virtual babies.
