London Awards 2014 – Winners announced

Posted on: January 31st, 2014 by chandco

Last week we helped St Paul’s Cathedral and London First celebrate the people, places and companies that have helped make London such a success over the past year through London First’s London Awards 2014.

Entering through the stunning Cathedral, guests were greeted by the impressive and peaceful Cathedral floor and given their own personal tours, which included areas of the Cathedral that are off limits during the day, before being led down the beautifully lit stairwell to the white arches of Nelson’s chamber.

Hosted by Baroness Jo Valentine, Chief Executive of London First, the five awards were announced using a slightly different format with each award being announced in between courses. The menu featured classic British dishes with a twist, including starter of wild mushroom soufflé with Twineham Grange cream, baby leeks and pink pepper biscuits, herb crusted lamb shoulder and rump, with vanilla parsnips, potato fondant and truffle jus for main course, and a much acclaimed and decadant pudding of white chocolate and Bailey’s torte with pistachio brittle.

“The London Awards are a great way to recognise and celebrate the people and organisations that make London a great place to live, work and play,” said Baroness Jo Valentine.

“The vision and creativity we see from both the winners and those that made the shortlist helps keep the eyes of the world focused on the capital.

“They are a constant reminder of London’s dynamism and why it continues to attract the brightest and the best.”

St Paul’s Cathedral helps put London First

Posted on: January 20th, 2014 by chandco

Harbour & Jones Events will be working alongside St Paul’s Cathedral to host the 2014 London First London Awards next week.

The event, run by not-for-profit organisation London First, is in its second year and will take place on 23 January. It recognises people, organisations and initiatives that have helped to define the capital’s international position over the past year.

Harbour & Jones Events and St Paul’s will be creating a classic British three-course fine dining menu in the cathedral’s crypt, which will be transformed for the evening by Ash Productions.

Rosie Day, St Paul’s Cathedral corporate events manager, said: “We’re thrilled to be a part of such a fantastic London-specific awards night. The winners from last year speak for themselves; Crossrail, London 2012 Games Makers and Olympic Delivery Authority, all of which have had a huge impact on London Life.

“As a landmark London venue we understand exactly how important it is to recognise and promote London businesses and their contribution to the city, which is exactly what the London Awards do.”

On the night four awards will be introduced by Baroness Jo Valentine, chief executive of London First, including investment in London’s future, improvement to Londoners’ quality of life, champion for London and contribution to London’s cultural excellence.

Partnering with Time Out magazine, the contribution to London’s cultural excellence has been open to reader vote since December and consists of a shortlist of big names.

Among the names are London 2012’s artistic director Danny Boyle; Tamara Rojo, artistic director of the English National Ballet; and Jason Atherton, executive chef at Gordon Ramsay’s Michelin-starred Maze restaurant.

The Shard, Roundhouse, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Selfridges, Granary Square, EDF Energy London Eye, Leicester Square, National Theatre and V&A are the venues shortlisted for the accolade.
