We have reached the penultimate look at our events of the decade! From 2010 until 2019, we are looking through each and every year to find the events that we felt went above and beyond and provided a real spectacle for guests to enjoy. Today’s blog looks back to last year, 2018, to see which events we felt really went the extra mile!
We have booked entertainment for wedding proposals a few times over the years and 2018 was no exception with an absolutely beautiful moment captured on camera! We were asked to provide a harpist to help our client propose to his girlfriend and as one can expect, with a little help from Camilla the harpist, the happy couple duly got engaged! This particular event gives a glimpse into many of the hundreds of smaller events that we help supply each and every year.
Our sister company Trevor George Entertainment have put on a number of notable events since we bought them in 2016, looking to spread our love of entertainment far and wide across the UK. We thought it might be interesting to look at one event where they really flourished last year and that was in helping with the National Venue Awards 2018. Not only did they book top dance act Frobacks but they also managed to book top TV magician Ben Hanlin to not only perform magic but also present the event from the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester.

From Manchester to York for our next event in 2018, which might just be the most astonishing event we have held throughout the entire decade. Working in conjunction with Trevor George, we booked the Heliosphere to float through York Minster. The event itself was absolutely spellbinding – our circus performer attached to the giant balloon even managed to shake hands with Archbishop John Sentamu and create Peter Pan shadows – and we believe the pictures by Ravage Productions really do speak for themselves.
Sternberg Clarke is known for their London events but did you know that we also provide entertainment to events abroad? In quick succession we not only provided Le Gateau Chocolat and the Globe Girls for a huge event in the Messe, Berlin, but we then provided Wandering Hands for a gorgeous wedding at Chateau de Lacoste in France. Stunning surroundings and the very best entertainment; is there really anything better? We don’t think so!
Back to London and we were overjoyed to be involved with a huge event at the British Museum. Held in the Queen Elizabeth II Great Court (which always amazes visitors when they first arrive), we booked world famous international act Soweto Gospel Choir to impress! An event held in order to celebrate reaching $100 million of donations towards tackling avoidable blindness and visual impairment, it was an event held to support a tremendous cause, raising money for Seeing is Believing.
The final event of 2018 that we felt captured the spirit of what entertainment is all about was the Unique Venues of London 25th birthday celebration. Held at the incredible Guildhall in London, every single supplier impressed as representatives from the finest venues in London congregated to enjoy some of the best entertainment we had to offer. Our exclusive vocal trio Echo, Frobacks and Jack Pack all provided amazing performances throughout the evening whilst Felipe and Emma combined to provide a gorgeous combination of violin and circus that absolutely wowed the crowd.
There’s no doubt about it, 2018 was a tremendous year in the history of Sternberg Clarke. Please feel free to join us on Friday for our look back at 2019 as we bring our events of the decade to a close. Which events will we choose to highlight from this wonderful year?
