Lipton Ice Tea Summer Stories launch at 41 Portland Place

Posted on: June 15th, 2015 by chandco

50 of the UK’s press were welcomed to 41 Portland Place on 2nd June for the Lipton Ice Tea Summer Stories screening.

The creative team from The Persuaders transformed the Ann Rylands Room and Terrace into a summer oasis and guests were treated to Lipton Ice Tea ice lollies and ice cream, a summer barbecue and cocktails created to showcase the refreshing summer drink.

A series of short films were shown to launch Britvic and Pepsi Lipton International’s summer campaign for Lipton Ice Tea.

Targeting the brand’s core audience of busy 18-34 year olds, the campaign is centred on a series of London-based events which aim to get Londoners to break from their normal routine and experience their city in a different way. As you may have already seen, the events are supported by advertising, social media activity and experiential sampling.

Three is the magic number…

Posted on: June 8th, 2015 by chandco

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.

We are delighted to announce that IET London: Savoy Place is appointing Harbour & Jones Events as their sole caterer.

Providing an enticing range of bespoke day delegate packages, fine dining and event menus to the backdrop of panoramic views of London, we will be serving up to 330 delegates at a time at the IET London’s flagship venue. The announcement comes as IET London moves into the final months of its £30 million refurbishment, which sees the development of a brand new roof terrace that will be available for meetings and private events from October.

Our Director of Food, Gary Mckechnie, will work closely with the soon-to-be appointed Head Chef. They will ensure that menus are carefully tailored to reflect both the venue, and our established credentials for renowned first-class customer service, all-inclusive pricing and innovative event catering.

IET London: Savoy Place has been closed since July 2013 and the major project aims to position IET London: Savoy Place as a first-class event facility and a ‘Global Engineering Hub ‘to IET members and the engineering community.

Sean Spencer, Head of IET Venues and Facilities, says: “Appointing Harbour & Jones puts into place one of the final pieces before we launch this new fantastic product for meeting and event organisers. With the highly innovative and creative approach Harbour & Jones takes to catering we are confident we will have built a first class venue that the industry will enjoy immensely.”
