We are delighted to announce that McQueens Flower School is expanding! With the introduction of a new school space at our HQ in Bethnal Green, we are able to offer a full programme of autumn/winter classes and, for the very first time, there will be additional classes to celebrate Christmas the McQueens way.
‘I’m happy to report that 2017 has been the most remarkable year in McQueens Flower School’s history,’ says McQueens founder and MD Kally Ellis. ‘Our tutors have enjoyed wonderful international opportunities around the world with teaching assignments as far afield as Australia, China, Italy, California, and Dubai. Furthermore, we have welcomed a record number of students through our doors. In response to increased demand, we’re expanding our school programme during the coming season.’
The new additional school space means McQueens can now offer courses throughout the autumn/winter term in a more intimate setting where we will teach smaller, dedicated groups of maximum 10 students. We are also offering a timetable of Christmas classes at McQueens for the very first time as we make plans to celebrate the festive season in style.
