When it comes to venues and taking photos, it isn’t just the inside that counts. The outside of a building can draw people in and when it comes to London venues that’ll make your jaw drop, there’s more than a few that get the architectural pulse racing. One of these is definitely the Royal Academy of Arts and Sternberg Clarke were lucky enough to be in attendance for an event.

When it comes to arriving for an event, there aren’t too many places in London that our more beautiful than the Royal Academy of Arts’ courtyard, with its statue of English painter Sir Joshua Reynolds. Alfred Drury won the commission for the piece way back in 1917 but it took him 14 years to finish it. It’s a true marvel and something that all guests can enjoy as they approach your party or event at Burlington House.

Working in conjunction with Rocket Food and Event Concept, Sternberg Clarke put on a spectacular affair to celebrate the opening of the Summer Exhibition 2017 and attendees will no doubt be talking about for weeks to come! Singer-guitarist James played background music whilst those in attendance arrived and nibbled at canapés, with a palpable sense of excitement at the main offering.

Sternberg Clarke have been talking about them a lot recently and with good reason! Ember have taken YouTube by storm and they can certainly see the event industry is due to catch up soon as well. Able to play contemporary hits by the likes of Sia, Ariana Grande and Ed Sheeran in a classical style (as well as classical music itself), their compositions are absolutely gorgeous and everybody who hears them are often left spellbound. They played a number of sets at the event and the response was fantastic.

As ever, it was a lovely event at the Royal Academy of Arts  and Sternberg Clarke can’t wait to return later in the year.

The Summer Exhibition 2017 officially opens today and you can book tickets here.
