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.

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!

Check out our little ode to Stanley Kubric here. Big thanks to all at Digital Pro!
We thought we’d put together this little film to help show how our studios are interconnected.
If you’re needing a couple of studios linked together check out our Suites page to see all we have to offer.

Sunbeam Launch Party in association with ISES Talks

Held in association with ISES Talks we were able to launch our brand new Studios One and Four to the event industry. At Sunbeam we are dedicated to operating in a sustainable fashion. Therefore our goal for the evening was to inspire our peers in the event industry to make a change and think about the impact our choices make. We were very grateful to Duncan Goose, founder of The One Foundation, who came along to talk about his amazing story which certainly inspired all of us.
Many of our partners contributed to the evening in their own special ecological way. To add a little fun to our task of finding sustainable energy sources, Magnificent Revolution brought along their bicycle powered generators which provided the energy to our sound system. Needless to say the evening was well received and demonstrated how doing the right thing is achievable and very exciting!
