Michael Upton, Academic Leader at The Cass said "We were delighted and honoured to be invited to participate in this celebration of art and design in London for the Diamond Jubilee. Its's an excellent showcase for the range and standard of innovative design work from the Faculty and its' schools. In some ways we're the best kept secret in the creative world- staff here using facilties like Metropolitan Works are at the cutting edge of contemporary design so it's great that The Queen and the people of London will have the opportunity to enjoy the work."
