Venus in Fur @ Theatre Royal Haymarket – Review

November 21, 2017

It has been a short while since our most recent theatre review and we thought that it was time to head out to the delights of the West End once again! A Saturday matinee in November was just the ticket for heightening our mood as the rain continued to douse the tourists on Leicester Square. Even better, upon picking up our tickets, we discovered that we had been upgraded from the gallery - £15 cheap seats – to the stalls. Hooray for earlier (and less popular) timeslots!... "Read More

November 17, 2017

We’ve all seen the Disney/Pixar film Up about a house that floats into the air using thousands of helium-filled balloons, but did you know that we here at Sternberg Clarke offer the possibility of booking similar acts for your events? If you book Heliosphere, you hire a large helium-filled balloon beneath which an aerial artist will perform. If you book Helioom, the one large balloon is replaced with many brightly lit smaller balloons. Perfect! But what if somebody decided to try and use a similar-sized balloon to navigate with? That’s the topic of this week’s fascinating fact!... "Read More

5 Multi-Talented Sternberg Clarke Performers

November 16, 2017

When looking for a DJ or band, as well as any other form of entertainment for your event, you might be forgiven for thinking that the performer’s skill that evening is literally all they can do. Because somebody bills themselves as a Fire Tuba player, you might just think that playing the Fire Tuba is all the skills they have. Not so, dear reader. Many of the people on our books started out as one form of entertainer and morphed into another. Get ready to gasp and shout, “No way!” at the screen as you read about these five individuals…...

When it comes to weddings, we feel there are two types. You can either go for small and intimate with only close friends and family in attendance, or all out; we’re talking a large picturesque venue that has probably featured in a Jane Austen adaptation at some point, partying long into the night and of course, some exceptional entertainment that carries the wow factor. You could simply go for a DJ, but why not take a look at these 5 acts that carry the wow factor for your wedding day.... "Read More

In Pictures: Acoustik and Isabella the Harpist @ Royal Hospital Chelsea

What a wonderful week we enjoyed last week!

Elvis Presley and the Fireworks Game that he Invented – Ooh, Interesting! Fascinating Facts

November 10, 2017

Elvis Presley. One of the most famous musical superstars of the last century. Perhaps the most famous. Still able to get to the top of the charts today and still being featured on hit adverts every other year or so. Not to mention the many imitators and costumes that members of the general public can pick up today if they so desire. A hit at karaoke. A bouffant to envy. One of the few people ever to have lived whom is synonymous with his first name. In short, a very famous man indeed. But for all of his songs, there was a lot more to the man. Graceland, Cadillacs and yes, inventing dangerous games in his spare time.... "Read More
