The Year In Review Pt 1: Our Favourite Events from 2011

January 12, 2012


The start of the new year is often a time for reflection on the previous one. For most people that means cringing at mistakes, regretting certain choices and vowing never to do certain things again. That's most people though, not Sternberg Clarke. If you're London's leading supplier of Corporate Event Entertainment, a bit of time spend looking back over the previous year's events is an exercise in "remembering how awesome it is to be London's leading supplier of entertainment." Or maybe it just seems that way because we don't put up blogs about shockingly bad auditions or losing iPads.

Anyway; as a way to relive the previous year in Event Entertainment (and cunningly recycle a load of old website content) we're featuring our 12 favourite events from the last year in handy list form. So why not sit back, fire up a youtube video of "The Entertainer" , open a few browser tabs at once and enjoy some of the best events of 2011...

We kicked off the year in Abbasolutely Spectacular style with this Private Birthday Party. Our client was a huge fan of musicals and the popular TV show "Glee" and was given a party to remember featuring a Flashmob and an Abba Tribute acts as well as flame jugglers, regular jugglers and a DJ set from aural cheese-merchants Guilty Pleasures.
