Four venues shortlisted for London Venue Awards

Posted on: August 3rd, 2015 by chandco

Last week brought us the fantastic news that four venues within the Harbour & Jones Events collection have been shortlisted in the London Venue Awards.

The awards were launched this year with the aim of recognising the excellence and exceptional quality offered at different types of venues in London. 20 categories focus on venue distinction, customer service, catering and technology.

We’re extremely proud that RSA House is shortlisted for best conference venue for up to 300, RIBA for best venue 300-600, The O2 for best venue over 1600 capacity and Cutty Sark for best corporate party venue.

The awards ceremony will be held on Friday 16 October at the Emirates Stadium. Very best of luck to the teams at each venue, and hopefully we’ll be reporting back in October with more good news.

The Science Museum unveils new events space for limited time only

Posted on: July 6th, 2015 by chandco

The Science Museum in South Kensington is further enhancing its corporate events offer with a new space available for a limited time only. The Wellcome Wing Gallery is available to hire until the end of October and can be used to host conferences, product launches, fashion shows, exhibitions and experiential events.

The new conference and events space has capacity for 450 guests standing and is situated in the same section as the IMAX theatre. The two spaces can be used in conjunction with each other offering a separate area for break outs, exhibitions and drinks receptions alongside a main conference.

Jodie Guilford, Event Sales Manager at The Science Museum, said: “The Wellcome Wing Gallery is an exciting new space for events that we are pleased to now be able to offer clients. It is very much a blank canvas space and the fact that it is only available until October, means it is perfect for exclusive, one-of-a-kind events. The space will be available for dry hire and the events team will be on hand to help create bespoke and unique events that are guaranteed to wow guests.”

With just a limited time to experience the newest events space at the Science Museum, contact Lucy Mears, Sales & Marketing Manager: lucy@harbourandjones.co.uk to find out more.

Harbour & Jones Events creates the perfect chemistry with new partner

Posted on: September 16th, 2013 by chandco

We’ve been announced as the new hospitality and events caterer at the Royal Society of Chemistry.  Taking over from 1st July, the contract is worth in excess of £1 million over the three-year term.

Burlington House, the Royal Society of Chemistry’s historic central London home, houses its offices, conferencing and dining facilities in the grand surroundings of The Chemistry Centre. It has now become a part of the prestigious Harbour & Jones Events venue collection, which also includes the Royal Society, Royal Academy of Engineering, RADA and the Academy of Medical Science.

Head chef Alan Sosa has been at the Royal Society of Chemistry since January having previously worked for high profile clients including EMI Records and the Houses of Parliament. Already making his mark with molecular gastronomy, Harbour & Jones Events has been working with Alan to refine the menu even further, creating a strong link between the society’s chemistry roots and molecular gastronomy.

Patrick Harbour, owner and director of Harbour & Jones Events said: “We are delighted to have started working with the Royal Society of Chemistry in their amazing building at Burlington House. As their name suggests we will be including molecular gastronomy and chemistry-influenced items on the menu. Another major part of our focus will be in enhancing the conference and working lunch menus to provide excellent value and consistency.”

The impressive Royal Society of Chemistry library continues the atmosphere of academic grandeur and houses over 20,000 books; it is also one of the most popular event spaces at the Chemistry Centre, attracting a host of high-profile clients including GlaxoSmithKline, Proctor & Gamble, BHP Billiton, BP, AstraZeneca and the London College of Fashion.

Renato Carvalho, Hospitality Manager at the Chemistry Centre, said: “This is the start of an exciting venture together and we look forward to welcoming our clientele who will experience the fabulous cuisine provided by Harbour & Jones Events.”

Harbour & Jones Events will be working on menus with new concepts including interactive ice cream parlours and tapas-style lunches, using bold British, Moroccan, Spanish and Italian-themed menus.

“One of our new concepts will be a sharing British picnic lunch for a more informal style of service during the remainder of the summer,” concluded Patrick.
