At Sternberg Clarke, we know entertainment. It says as much right on the welcome page of the website. In order to keep up to date on entertainment, we like to head out and see as many events as possible throughout the month. So here’s our rundown of the things we’ve seen and really enjoyed in February.
With it being Comedy Month on the blog, we saw an amazing amount of comedy from the likes of Joe Lycett, Dane Baptiste and Hal Cruttenden. As well as deciding to give out some virtual awards to our absolute favourite acts, many of our reviews are available on the blog. Michael Mittermeier was very funny and David Mills added a splash of cabaret to proceedings. So you could say that all of these performers are re-comedy-ended. Recommended. Sigh.
Still on the comedy theme, Idil Sukan’s This Comedian exhibition is a must-see at the Embassy Tea Gallery until March 9th, with a retrospective of her shots from the past five years (and a secret Penny Dreadfuls room that is well worth seeking out). Just last night we also enjoyed a talk from Clare Balding, where she spoke about her career, the Olympics and getting more women active in sport.
In preparation for Circus Month in March, we also fitted in a couple of circus events including Inside the Box and Noodles at Jackson Lane Theatre, Cirque Berserk in Wimbledon and Cirque Eloize at the Peacock Theatre. On the subject of theatre, it was also fun to take in a couple of shows – The Railway Children at King’s Cross was perfect family fun whilst Hello/Goodbye at the Hampstead Theatre was a lovely meet/cute play written by Peter Souter. Both plays offered some wonderful production design.
Although we love live entertainment, there’s no denying that the office also enjoyed a fair amount of telly and cinema this month; Whiplash was a huge favourite at the cinema along with the various awards shows (the Birdman vs. Boyhood debate will no doubt continue to rage), whilst Indian Summers and Wolf Hall divided the staff due to their languid pace, though none could deny their impressive attention to detail and costumes.
Finally, because we’re a charitable bunch, we’ve obviously enjoyed the return of the The Great British Bake-Off for Comic Relief.
More next month!
