A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE CARPENTERS

On Monday 25 March, the joiners made their singing debut on the BBC’s popular current affairs programme, The One Show.

The shows production team approached the workshop and asked the team to feature in a short film sequence. The clip shows the joiners, singing one of The Carpenters best-loved songs ‘Top of the world’.

The purpose of the song was to pay homage to the American music icon, singer songwriter, Richard Carpenter. Richard recently released a new album featuring The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which has already gone silver.

The film features a medley of The Carpenter songs, performed by various companies across London, including: the London Zoo keepers, Wandsworth Town Library librarians, New Broadcasting House postal workers, and lastly, the Falkus Joinery joiners.

When scouting for locations, the production team were searching for unique locations that captured the essence of London. The shows producers stated they ‘when they came across the joinery workshops brightly coloured graffiti wall, they felt that a group of joiners/carpenter, performing to Richard Carpenter, would be an ideal way to end the clip.   

Although our joinery talents, are predominantly in woodworking, and should probably remain that way, we were thrilled to be a part of the fun. You can catch our performance, along with the full interview with Richard here.

If you would like to discuss bookings for future musical performances, we’re now available for birthdays, weddings, and bar mitzvahs. Only joking, we’ll stick to the woodworking for now.

A brief history of Falkus Joinery

Founded by the Falkus family as an independent joinery manufacturer, the company prospered and were therefore looking to expand. When meeting with the Jerram’s it was agreed that it would be mutually beneficial to merge companies and expand their collective business offerings.

For both companies a successful partnership ensued over the decades which has allowed the collective to thrive and expand into new sectors. Today the Jerram Group is comprised of four divisions: Jerram Falkus Construction, Falkus Joinery, Jerram Development and Jerram Falkus. As a croup we’ll continue to develop with the times and provide high-end construction and joinery service to the UK.  

Take a journey through the decades and discover our combined history with the Jerram Group. We hope that you find this just as interesting as we did.
