Leading figures from the creative world are attending the Hampton School 2018 Creative Futures afternoon, which aims to highlight to pupils the diverse and fascinating range of career options available in the creative industries.

ITV broadcaster and World-Affairs Editor Rageh Omaar will be one of the attendees alongside former political editor of The Sun, George Pascoe-Watson, national stage and screen actor Sam Marks, video games designer Momotaro Ushido plus many more.

A range of bespoke workshops will give boys a unique opportunity to hear from some of the top people in the creative sphere as well as being able to ask them questions and pick up invaluable career advice.

Places for this popular event, which is open to boys in the Third and Fourth Years as well as Lower Sixth, are limited and go quickly. Pupils are advised to book as soon as possible by logging into the relevant School intranet section:
