Floral Event Management

Sydney Flower School is excited to announce the second offering of our Event Planning & Management Course, as an opportunity for students to be involved in an upcoming ‘real-lfe’ industry event.

Due it’s outstanding success in 2017, the Rivendell Flower Show will be held on 29 + 30 September 2018, again in the beautiful Thomas Walker Estate in Concord. Rivendell will again be open to the public showcasing this scale flower show for Sydney’s inner west community. The Estate has been the previous location for Lex Luthor’s mansion in Superman Returns and was included in Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby.

The Rivendell Flower Show is a combination of floral displays, floral gardens, pop up workshops & demonstrations with special guest appearances by some of Australia’s best gardening & floral personalities.

Sydney Flower School will again be designing, planning, constructing and dismantling all the floral displays on the Front Entrance of the building as well as in both the Entrance Hall & huge formal Ballroom of Rivendell.

Starting from the beginning of July the Floral Event Mangement course will run over 3 months, with classes being held on a fortnightly basis, culminating in the actual set up & dismantling.

The course will give each participant the opportunity to work as part of a real-life project team. These classes will cover everything required to design & manage not only the Rivendell Flower Show but any large floral event of this calibre.
