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.

Epic Building (and a sense of humour to boot!)

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.

Nina Ricci’s release of their new perfume was marked with an elegant and sophisticated product launch at Sunbeam Studios in collaboration with Velvet Living. Guests arrived for a canapé and drinks reception in Talbot Hall and moved into our Main Hall for a presentation by a Nina Ricci representative. Guests were then invited into our brand new Rootes Hall for a special performance set to a backdrop of Nina Ricci trademark red apples and a red forest setting. As the first event to take place in the new studio this was a very elegant start to what we’re sure will be an exciting event filled-year in our new space.
