"Studying cultural education subjects, such as art and design, dance, drama and music, sparks creativity across the curriculum, encouraging young people to be inquisitive, disciplined and determined. Wherever children start in life, a high quality cultural education in every school should be a right, not a privilege.

Alongside literacy and numeracy, another skill needed in our workforce today is creativity. Cultural education subjects help young people to unlock their innate creativity, enabling them to become more rounded and con dent human beings." - Darren Henley OBE
Chief Executive, Arts Council England

how CULTURE CLUB works

Great Prices & Great Seats

I only choose the best seats for adults, or small people. It's worth knowing that the sooner you make your booking the cheaper your ticket may be. Prices go up the later you book, as I can only hold tickets for a specific length of time. 

Concierge Fees

I charge a concierge fee for booking your tickets, the e-commerce, organising your seats, re-issuing you with lost tickets, diary reminders, curating the best events, running the site, and am always contactable for any questions no matter how big or small. I will be available at some events to help you on the day. Sometimes, things don't go quite to plan, and if you're running late, or can't find the venue, or maybe need a hand with where to park the buggy, myself or one of my colleagues will be on hand to help.

At my bespoke events the kids get goody bags. I can also organise parties or help with any special requests from advice on travel, to the most suitable shows for your child (i.e. Kids that love Shakespeare to those whom don't like loud noises and pyrotechnic effects) and can advise on where to eat, and where to park ! I have a close relationship with the venues, so can make your trip as easy as possible.

My Promise To You

I'm quite fussy and only want the best for my guests, so you can be certain that if I wouldn't pay for it myself, I certainly would ask you to. Be sure to know you can contact me any time, and if you have any problem at all, just contact me by email sian.gwilliam@me.com or phone 07958 385 929.

Tickets & Goody Bags

I hold tickets for a limited time with the venue, so my tip is book quickly to avoid disappointment. As a part of the MCC family you get first picks of any ticket offers, bumper goody bags for the kids, and tips on the best places to go nearby.  You can contact me at any time as I'm here to help. I have a good relationship with the venues, and can help you with those little extras. No question is too small, all you need to do is turn up, I will do the rest.

Personal Concierge

I offer a bespoke concierge services for families. Let me schedule your weekend in and around London and the UK. I know my way around, have expert knowledge of the best places to have a great time, and reliable contacts to make things happen the way you want them to.

Bespoke Culture Club Events

I curate around 4-6 bespoke events a year. I also help schools, nurserys, and parent groups organise educational trips. The sky is the limit to what you might be invited to, so watch this space, and please do sign up for newsletters, as the groups are small, and tickets are limited.

Consultancy

I don't just run family events, adults get a look in too. If you're run a company why not hire me to organise a networking event for you, or just a good old team outing. I also work as a freelance Events Consultant, and TV Line Producer. I have been working in the TV industry for 20+ years, and have been running My Culture Club for the last 5 years.

Let Me Know What You Like

I curate events specifically just for you, so feedback is key to the big picture. If there is an event that you think I should know about and that you'd like me to look into, let me know and I'll organise getting everyone there. Email me here, or get me on all the other social media apps that I check 87 times a day.

Your Grey Matter

I'm keen to nurture your grey matter, and give you an excuse to meet up with friends and do something interesting.  MCC runs private art tours, theatre trips & workshops, exhibitions, guided walks, sport matches, lunches, tastings, literature talks, backstage access, and cooking demos. If it's different, or I can personally recommend it, then I'm there.

Tickets

Many of the events have limited numbers, as I like to keep our groups small and intimate where possible!

Booking Fees

I charge a concierge and admin fee to the price of the ticket. This supports the curating, research & booking process, any 3rd party booking fees, technical support, e-commerce security, payment and refund charges, administration, and company running costs. I also have to pay for tickets upfront, and make sure that I support the venues where I can by signing up to their membership programs, by becoming 'a friend of the venue', or considering their gift aid projects, so I put as much back into the system as I possibly can.
