Good news for Harbour & Jones

Posted on: December 17th, 2015 by chandco

Harbour & Jones acquires Principals Catering Consultants

We would like to share with you the exciting news that the Harbour & Jones family is expanding.

On 15th December 2015 we acquired Principals Catering Consultants Ltd, which trades in both the events and business and industry fields as Fare of London, a prestigious contract catering and venue management business, and Principals Catering, a prominent education caterer.

This exciting initiative forms a part of our next five-year strategy and will allow us to remain both independent and a leader in our field. Harbour & Jones, Harbour & Jones Events and H&J Upfront, along with Fare and Principals, will all continue to trade in each respective market and as separate and distinct brands. Each company is an expert in its field and it would be foolhardy to change what we believe is already a winning approach.

Fare of London and Principals Catering were founded over 25 years ago and are well-established companies, run by respected managers and operators, who we know will add a great deal to our portfolio and experience.

There is also a personal connection with PCC. In his early career Nathan Jones worked for the owner, John Durden, at Principals Catering and later, Fare of London. As John was looking to plan his retirement he wanted to hand on his company to people he knew and trusted, so this agreement seemed the next logical step for both Durden and Harbour & Jones, and an opportunity not to be missed.

“We may be bigger but our values will stay the same: our pursuit of innovation and creativity; our commitment to good nourishing food; our focus on quality and service and our verve.” Patrick Harbour

We have made a video that explains more about our acquisition. You can view this at www.greatcombination.co.uk.

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

Save the Orchards launch event at the RSA

Posted on: June 22nd, 2013 by chandco

We created an incredible pop-up orchard on Wednesday 19th June in the bare brick vaults of RSA House to launch our campaign to save declining orchards to the events industry. More than 190 event industry professionals including representatives from M&C Saatchi, Banks Sadler, DUAL Group, and Industri UK attended.

Giving event bookers the opportunity to sample our new Save the Orchards themed menu, we also launched a new interactive concept – an old fashioned juicer that guests can use to squeeze their own juice and enjoy the sweetness of freshly pressed apples. For every glass squeezed Harbour & Jones Events will be also donating 50p towards saving more trees in their quest to restore 300 orchard trees this year.
