Thursday 4 June proved to be quite the night for Harbour & Jones Events as we hosted three extraordinary events spanning across London. Usually this wouldn’t be such big news, but this time around our teams took to the floors of St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and Borough Market for three very different but equally exceptional occasions.
Westminster Abbey took on a Midsummer Night’s Dream theme as the cloisters were transformed with costumed characters, a harpist and magicians to welcome 250 guests. Rhubarb bellinis circled the room along with tempting canapes such as scallop and pancetta lollipops, and smoked aubergine caviar with paprika yoghurt. And as the early evening light faded, our waiters unveiled our trademark pudding walls, filled to the brim with sweet treats including summer berry marshmallows and white chocolate macarons.
Meanwhile, at St Paul’s Cathedral, our teams were busy setting the Cathedral floor for the bi-annual gala dinner. This prestigious banquet pays tribute to 270 distinguished supporters of St Paul’s Cathedral with a spectacular five-course feast. Guests dined on Hereford beef Carpaccio, Pan-seared Scottish cod and a risotto of summer peas before sampling delicate pistachio madeleine’s and finally indulging in vast platters of traditional English cheeses.
Across the city, under the canopy of the historic Borough Market, revellers took to the floor at Event Magazine’s 18th birthday bash. Our signature street food stalls featured authentic Mexican tapas, Korean steamed buns and a ‘best of British’ picnic stall. Partygoers enjoyed craft beers and pomegranate fizz served by waiters dressed in checked shirts, jeans and wellington boots, embracing the festival-feel of the evening.
Our teams were thrilled to have been involved in three very special events in three unique venues – all in one evening.
