THINGS got spooky at Coleg Gwent as students attended a fright night fundraiser.
Zombies, ghosts and vampires thrilled at a Halloween prom at the Cross Keys campus.
Rhys Hutchings from Newport’s Goldie Lookin’ Chain opened the event, which was held in aid of Children’s Hospice Ty Hafan.
Theatrical make up students transformed guests with frightening face paint as the party got under way in the theatre.
Independent Living Skills (ILS) students and the college’s voluntary drama group Shine who organised the event, were joined by friends including Olympic torch bearer Lyn Hull, an ambassador from Ty Hafan, local school children and students from across the campus.
ILS Tutor Victoria English said: "Students are relishing the chance to dress up for the prom and to raise as much money as they can.”
“Ty Hafan is a cause close to our hearts, as the brother of one of our students receives amazing support from the charity.”
A raffle and cake sale was also held and a limousine donated by Co-operative Funeralcare Risca provided a backdrop for pictures.
