In the stylish surrounds of London's Barbican Centre, we welcomed tutors, students, sponsors and guests to celebrate those commended in this years' Student Awards.

Beginning with speeches and awards presentations in the Barbican's atmospheric underground cinema, commended students were presented with certificates — with jazzy musical accompaniments (and obligatory drumroll) generously provided by The Apple Jacks Band. This year's Student of the Year, Robbie Hancock, was also presented with a wooden YCN Bar — crafted from oak by designer Tom Forsyth.

Our guests then moved up to the tropical surrounds of the Barbican's Garden Rooms and Conservatory to meet, eat, drink and enjoy an exhibition of this year's awarded work.

Thanks go to our presenters, Alec Doherty, Heidi Lightfoot, Dave Bell and Amy Currell, and our congratulations again to this years' commendees.
