This student design competition is sponsored by a Japanese Bank to help revitalize the regional Ibaraki economy in Japan. It asks students to create designs for local Ibaraki products, in this case tea. The winning design will be selected by the company producing the product and the packaging will be produced with the name of the student and their institution. The winning student (or representative student if a group submission) will be invited to visit Ibaraki for one week during the summer of 2017.
The Faculty for Creative and Cultural Industries’ Tea Club met on Friday for the first time this academic year.

Third year BA (Hons) Drama & Performance students have set up their own theatre company, Epoch Theatre, and are holding a 1940’s Tea Dance on the 24 April, at the Square Tower in Old Portsmouth to promote the company.
