Mods and Rockers get a taste of Middle Temple Hall

Posted on: March 12th, 2015 by chandco

We had the pleasure of hosting a ‘Mods and Rockers’ themed dinner last week (7 March) at Middle Temple Hall.

The dinner formed part of the London City Selection experiential weekend, with the annual gathering being a chance for event-booking agents to sample hospitality at a number of London venues. After a drinks reception at The London Stock Exchange, guests came together at Middle Temple Hall for a gala dinner inspired by days by the British seaside – a fitting tribute to the Mod classic film Quadrophenia, and the album of the same name by The Who.

On arrival at Middle Temple Hall, part of the Harbour & Jones Events Collection, guests were greeted with a drinks reception and tempting canapés including popcorn crayfish cones, quail Scotch egg lollipops and Cropwell Bishop cheese doughnuts.

Taking their seats at the imposing, Hogwarts-style banqueting tables, guests sampled sharing platter starters, aptly named ‘a taste of the Great British seaside’ with potted shrimps, Dorset crab and Foreman’s smoked beetroot cured salmon all vying for attention.

To a sound track of classic rock music, the platters were cleared to make way for perfectly pink honey glazed Gressingham duck, and truffled potato gnocchi all served up with giant sharing dishes of hotpot style potatoes and spring greens.

As drinks flowed, the mood became playful as a flash mob took to the floor, delighting diners with an impressive dance routine set to well known anthems.

Harbour & Jones Events Director of Food, Gary Mckechnie finished the evening with an incredible pudding of chocolate delice, caramelised banana, honeycomb rocks, served on mod targets

We invited up-and-coming food blogger, Joe Teng from Food Punk Joe to join us at the table. Get the inside scoop from the event on his blog.

Theming is a great way to add a touch of informality to your events. We have some great ideas, and the creativity and flair to make them happen. Enquire now and let our Creative Director, Jules Heckman-Hughes and her team make your next event one to remember.

RSA House hosts A Night With Nu Bride

Posted on: February 18th, 2015 by chandco

It was a celebration of love at RSA House as Valentine’s Day approached last week. On Tuesday 10 February, the team welcomed wedding planners, journalists and stylish brides-and-grooms-to-be to an inspiring event to celebrate the award-winning wedding blog Nu Bride.

As guests arrived and the band started to play, the Benjamin Franklin room took centre stage following a styling transformation by Jemma-Jade Events. Softly lit with bespoke Nu Bride projections and storm lanterns casting delicate shadows in the corners of the room, the striking floral displays provided a stunning focus point, reaching right up towards the ceiling. An original illustration by Crisi Miki Wiki, showcasing diverse stylish brides was a talking point for designers, stylists and brides alike.

The RSA House weddings team created a tailored , for the evening, featuring Gruyere & truffle tartlets, black pepper macaroons filled with Severn Wye smoked salmon & soft herb cream, and show stopping lime meringue topped mango & passion fruit indulgences. Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium was on hand with an impressive display of tiered wedding cakes, cake pops and delicious cupcakes too.

Nova Reid, founder of Nu Bride, gave a heartfelt speech about her experience as a bride-to-be. She spoke passionately about the wedding industry and her recent Wedding Blog Award, and guests shared their photos and comments using the RSA House interactive Twitter wall. You can see how the night unfolded via #ANightWithNuBride and the atmospheric video created by Urban Cinematography.

The RSA House team is hosting a wedding open day on Saturday 28 February. To book your place, contact Elise on 0207 451 6809, or Elise.Parham@rsa.org.uk
