Borough Market launches its first Christmas with Harbour & Jones Events

Posted on: September 21st, 2014 by chandco

Borough Market has announced a partnership with boutique caterer Harbour & Jones Events, the companies will work together for Christmas, and going forward into 2015.

This is the first time Borough Market has created a joint package with a caterer and the first time the venue has officially been open for Christmas events.

Creating new packages for event bookers, the menus have been designed to reflect Borough Market’s outstanding food credentials, using produce from the market’s traders as well as providing unique add-ons that tie in with the market’s history.

Borough Market can accommodate receptions for up to 350 in its striking Market Hall as well as seated dinners for up to 100 in 1 Cathedral Street, a grand Victorian building that is the historic home of the old Borough Market Trustees.

“It’s very exciting for us to be able to work with the country’s most well known market whose name is synonymous with food quality and provenance,” said Patrick Harbour, Co-owner and Director of Harbour & Jones Events.

“Borough Market has been a part of our company’s history since Harbour & Jones was first created in 2004. We used to bring all new starters to the company to the market for their inductions to enthuse them about food and give them the opportunity to talk to some of our suppliers in person.”
