Ooh, Interesting! – Flying with a Cello

August 28, 2015

Here at Sternberg Clarke, we receive a lot of bookings. Many of these are based in London but a fair few are based abroad. This year so far, we’ve packed off Wandering Hands to Iceland (those poor boys...) and provided entertainment in Morocco! But let’s say we got a booking for a cellist and they had to fly to the event. How would they do it? It’s a unique problem for the reasons listed below.... "Read More

Comedy and Art – 6 Priceless Art Gallery and Museum Errors

August 27, 2015

There’s something extremely entertaining about comedy pratfalls and blunders. It’s sad but it’s true; we love seeing people do silly things and enjoy the comedy of laughing at their misfortune. A case in point is the enduring popularity of You’ve Been Framed. No event causes quite such a sharp intake of breath however, than that of the art gallery error. Or the museum trip. The exhibition blunder. Those moments where time must stop for the poor tourist as one moment, they’re enjoying the art on display and next thing they know, they’ve become the art, clowning into a priceless painting or statue. An expensive comedy moment for the ages. Here we’ve collected six classic art errors that taken collectively equates to a quarter of a billion dollars worth of errors. But on their own? It’s the art of slapstick comedy at its finest.... "Read More

It’s such an event that the newspapers cover it en masse, various reviews seeping out before the review embargo is officially lifted, while feverish fans defend their idol from the various criticisms that are no doubt lobbied their way. This year, the theatre event of 2015 is undoubtedly Hamlet at the Barbican, where Benedict Cumberbatch is taking on the titular role as the Prince of Denmark as all around him critics descend into madness. When really, it should be the other way around...... "Read More

One Direction Hiatus: 5 Bands To Take Their Place

August 25, 2015

In psychology, there’s  a term known as a flashbulb memory, a moment in time that you remember so vividly that you can recall exactly where you were when you heard a piece of news. Ordinarily, this is a tragedy – 9/11 for instance or the deaths of Princess Diana and John Lennon. And yes, every so often another tragic entry joins this list. And on Monday we were all saddened by the news of 1Direction’s hiatus throughout 2016. But no matter, 1Direction’s loss is Sternberg Clarke’s gain and here we present five bands that are more than willing to take their place.... "Read More

But next time you set foot inside the museum, we urge you to look up, for the Queen Elizabeth II Great Court (to give the full name) that you are greeted with upon entry is another feat of human achievement that often goes unappreciated....
