Hot off the press! Conference News has arrived in the Harbour & Jones Events office this morning and we are pleased to see that two of our venues have been mentioned – 41 Portland Place, for their summer menu showcase, and also St Paul’s Cathedral.
Profiling the best religious venues in the UK, Sarah O’Donnell, a reporter for Conference News, focuses on using churches for meetings and conferences.
Making the pilgrimage to see what the market can offer, Sarah headed to St Paul’s Cathedral, where Harbour & Jones Events are the in-house caterer.
St Paul’s Cathedral, London
With five event spaces, including the Crypt and Nelson Chamber, St Paul’s Cathedral is a setting for dinners for up to 250 guests and receptions for up to 350 as well as conferences and lunches for up to 70. The event spaces contain some of the oldest architectural features but have been transformed into venues for corporate hospitality.
The North Churchyard is St Paul’s Cathedral’s newest and first outdoor event space. This can accommodate receptions and BBQs for up to 250 and is one of a few outdoor event spaces located within the City of London.
Guests can also privately access the cathedral floor during their events. Tour guides and musical performances can also be organized.
Most unique event ever held (Also catered for by Harbour & Jones Events):
St Paul’s Cathedral held its first ever fashion show in January. Guests entered the event via the Cathedral floor before moving down to St Paul’s Crypt, which had been transformed into a catwalk. Following the show guests enjoyed a champagne drinks reception in the Nelson Chamber.
