Students at the University of Warwick were treated to a feast of talent in June when the campus became host to the largest student arts festival in Europe.

 
Masses of events
 
 Student festival
All decked out for the festival
The week-long festival included almost every conceivable art form.

These ranged from pottery and poetry, to early music and drum‘n’bass, along with painting, sound installation and Shakespeare and student drama.

It also had plenty of our favourite excuse to eat floor - breakdancing.

Where are the strings?
Click the images button below to launch a gallery of photographs showing the shapes and spins that impressed the crowds at Warwick Uni.

The standard was really high, from the DJs and the break dancers, so huge credit goes to the Midlands B-Boys and the students from Warwick, Coventry and other Midlands' universities.

Is this student from the Isle of Man?
If you missed the Warwick University gig, you can see the dancers again at the Coventry Sports Centre.

They've started an annual event there called Phoenix Funktion, with a live DJ and cash prizes for top moves.

Catch them at the centre on Fairfax Street from 1-7pm on Saturday 26 June 2004.
