Uli Weber – Goodwood Revival

Posted on Jan 05 In - Events, History, News, Shows, Studio Three, Sustainability

Following on from the success of his book “Portraits”, a 20 year retrospective of his celebrity portraiture that features the likes of Daniel Radcliffe, Sting, Bruce Willis and Kylie Minogue, Uli Weber has now turned his lens to the magic of the Goodwood Revival.

The Goodwood Revival Exhibition private view fundraiser was held in Sunbeam Studio’s grand Talbot Hall, a magical step back in time, as seen through a selection of images from Uli’s book. This show was in aid of Second Chance, a charity offering help to children from disadvantaged backgrounds or with histories of abuse with all profits stemming from the show going to the charity.

For more info please visit : www.second-chance.org.uk

Every year Goodwood stages a highly competitive race meeting featuring the kind of cars and motorcycles that would have been at this historic circuit during the period of 1948-1966.  It offers visitors the opportunity to leave the “modern world” behind and see motor sport luminaries such as Sir Stirling Moss, Nick Mason, John Surtees, Jean Alesi and Sir Jackie Stewart racing.

Sunbeam was proud to host such a beautiful and appropriate show, bringing cars back into this former car showroom.

‘Thank you Sunbeam Studios for allowing us to exhibit in such a spectacular space, Ladbroke Hall being one of the fist purpose built car factories in Britain.’ Uli Weber

The exhibition continues in our reception gallery until the end of March

110 Years of Excellence at Sunbeam Studios

Posted on Sep 08 In - Cars, Catering, Events, Exclusive Hire, Fashion, Filming, Garden, History, Music, News, Photography, Production, Shows, Studio Four, Studio One, Studio Three, Studio Two, Suite A, Suite B, Suite C, Suite D, Suite E, Sunbeam's Own

A dozen pre-war Talbot motor cars with a combined age of over 1000 years returned home on Sunday 8th September to where they were made; our building, Ladbroke Hall.

Our building  was the first purpose built car factory and showroom in the UK, opening its doors in 1903 and impressively this year we celebrated the centenary of the 100 miles in 1 hour World Record, set in 1913 by a car built right here at Sunbeam’s Ladbroke Hall. Through this achievement the driver Percy Lambert became the fastest man ever over this distance – on land, sea, or air, for which he earned the status of celebrity and national hero.

With people like Winston Churchill using the building as his experimental warfare establishment in WW1, the famous Kings visit in 1918, and the long line of motoring heroes such as Percy Lambert’s achievements, our building’s history has certainly set a high bar for us to aim for.

Studio 1 showed off our photographic services with a modern studio photo-shoot of a 1933 Talbot AV105 Super Speed Brooklands Tourer, produced by Sunbeam and photographed by Mitch Payne.

When Gary Barlow needed the flexibility to have two separate shoots and a breakaway interview space we were happy to help. Studio One housed  The Guardian , who also made great use of the garden for a few shots and a quiet place for the interview. Read the full interview here.

Hamish Brown shot Gary for the Radio Times in our Studio Three, making use of the fantastic period detailing in the room as well as the goal post set up that comes as standard with the space. See their interview here.

Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model 2011 on SkyLiving

Posted on Jul 26 In - Exclusive Hire, Fashion, Filming, News, Photography, Studio Four, Studio One, Studio Three, Studio Two, Suite A, Suite B

Having Elle Macpherson back to Sunbeam along with BINTM to put us through our paces was great fun.
They may be promising the feistiest series yet but even 60 fledgling models, 4 judges and a crew of over 30 was no match for our studios!
Because all our studios interconnect the BINTM crew were able to utilise all of the spaces throughout their filming here while keeping judges, crew and models separate and together at all the right times.

We were exhausted just watching them but it was a very successful filming process and we were glad it went so smoothly.
BINTM made us our own special trailer, check it out!
