Event magazine’s Top 20 Venues revealed

Posted on: November 26th, 2013 by chandco

The results are in! Event magazine has revealed the best venues in the UK in their official Top 20 Venues as voted for by over 3,700 readers.

Want to know why three of our venues beat off 280 of the UK’s most popular and prestigious venues?

Take a look below and call us to book a show round on 020 3206 7763.

 

RSA House

RSA has rocketed to number four in this year’s poll. The venue underwent an extensive £3m refurbishment last year to position it as a technologically advanced event space.

New AV features in the Georgian townhouse include live audio and video streaming, cinema-grade projection, interactive touch walls and 7.1 surround sound.

Discover the latest in venue technology.

 

Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark reopened in April 2012 and truly deserves its place in the Top 20. It has won four prestigious awards, been recognised by Trip Advisor as one of the world’s top 10 attractions, and is applying for a wedding license next year.

Event magazine also recently reported on our record breaking dinner on board the ship, where we catered for 500 guests in 24 hours as part of the World Travel Market.

Look around one of the world’s most astonishing landmarks.

 

41 Portland Place

Home to the Academy of Medical Sciences, Grade II*-listed 41 Portland Place has both indoor and outdoor event space – a rarity in the centre of London. The venue has hosted events for La Perla and Jaeger, and is currently transformed into The House of Peroni for a month long brand residency.

Take a tour around one of London’s coolest venues.

Photos are up from the Terrence Higgins Trust Supper Club after party

Posted on: November 8th, 2013 by chandco

Graham Norton and Ben di Lisi were among the 400 guests who attended our Terrence Higgins Trust Supper Club after party at London’s One Mayfair on Wednesday night.

The annual fundraising event, in its 13th year, brings together 50 of London’s top restaurants and caterers to raise funds for the UK-based HIV and sexual health charity. Dermot O’Leary, Alan Carr and Miranda Hart supported the Supper Club by hosting their own dinner parties.

Harbour & Jones Events provided its services free of charge for the after party, which saw Supper Club guests whisked away from dinners with celebrity hosts in a fleet of taxis to the One Events venue.

In attendance was 2012 winner of BBC Two’s The Great British Bake Off John Whaite, lead singer of The Feeling Dan Gillespie Sells, and MP Ben Bradshaw.

After party tunes were provided by Danny and Ilona Rampling who were on the decks all evening with an energetic mix of club classics and mainstream pop.

500 guests in 24 hours – Cutty Sark breaks its fine dining record

Posted on: November 4th, 2013 by chandco

This week the Cutty Sark will host back-to-back fine dining events as part of the World Travel Market.

Set to be two of the most prestigious and exclusive evenings of the week, it will be the first time that any caterer has hosted consecutive dinners of this scale aboard the landmark ship.

Today Harbour & Jones Events will cater for 270 at the UKinbound Gala Dinner, which will be attended by key figures in the travel and tourism industry.

Taking place tomorrow is the prestigious WTM Ministerial Dinner for 230 guests, which is organised by Reed Exhibition and in association with UNWTO World Travel Organisation and sponsored by the Travel Channel, who will also be providing guest speakers. The exclusive evening, now in its fifth year, will host Tourism Ministers, Senior Aides, private sector industry executives from around the world, and leading global travel trade publications.

Choosing only to work with iconic London venues, World Travel Market has previously hosted events at St Paul’s Cathedral, also a part of the Harbour & Jones Events venue collection. Instantly recognisable, Cutty Sark is one of the world’s most famous ships and the fastest and greatest of her time. She stands as a glorious monument to the age of sail and to all those who lost their lives in the merchant service. Situated on the shore of the mighty River Thames the ship provides commanding views over Canary Wharf and the City of London, making it an ideal historic venue.

Taking place at Excel London from 4-7 November, World Travel Market attracts 50,000 senior executives from the travel and tourism industry who will sign deals worth more than £2 billion.

Furthermore, WTM is worth more than £160m to the London economy through the discretionary spent of its delegates.
