A taste of Harbour & Jones Events at RSA House

Posted on: April 24th, 2015 by chandco

We were delighted to welcome more than 60 event organisers to RSA House last night (23 April) for a one-stop experiential venue tour of some of London’s most iconic event spaces.

A taste of Harbour & Jones Events gave guests a chance to explore eight venues including Prince Philip HouseCutty Sark, Borough Market and 41 Portland Place all under one roof, and to discover what’s new in event catering, food trends and concepts.

Guests from Brand Rapport, PWC, EMAP and UBS arrived to a drinks reception and canapés including marinated tiger prawns with a sherry vinegar & chorizo pipette, and heritage tomato ceviche, before taking their seats with gourmet popcorn in the Durham Street Auditorium for a series of virtual video tours through each of the venues.

Following the presentations, the RSA House team opened the atmospheric Vaults event spaces to reveal interactive global food stalls. A Northern European stall showcased the finest cured meats, British cheeses and picnic-style bites, while a taste of the Far East highlighted the hot trend of Korean BBQ and Ho-Bang steamed buns. The Southern States themed stall proved a huge hit, confirming that pulled pork buns and buttermilk fried chicken are trends that show no sign of disappearing any time soon.

To top the night off, RSA House head chef, Darren Archer revealed a huge pudding wall filled with bite sized puddings including mini brownies, Turkish delight and coconut ice. And guests gathered for a prize draw that included tickets for The O2 and the Science Museum, and afternoon tea at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Guests took to the interactive Twitter wall, posting photos and comments throughout the night, and drinks flowed from the bespoke mirrored bar created by Light Motif.

Susan Morrissey, Venue Sales Director of Harbour & Jones Events, commented: “Event bookers are busy people, and site visits can knock a whole day out of the diary. We wanted to bring our venues together under one roof, along with our latest menu concepts to give our guests the full venue visit experience in a snapshot of time”.

We recently announced listings at seven new venues including the Science Museum, The O2, Madame Tussauds and Trinity House, and we now have 23 venues in our ever-growing collection.

Head over to our Facebook page for photos from the evening.

Event magazine’s Top 20 Venues revealed

Posted on: November 26th, 2013 by chandco

The results are in! Event magazine has revealed the best venues in the UK in their official Top 20 Venues as voted for by over 3,700 readers.

Want to know why three of our venues beat off 280 of the UK’s most popular and prestigious venues?

Take a look below and call us to book a show round on 020 3206 7763.


RSA House

RSA has rocketed to number four in this year’s poll. The venue underwent an extensive £3m refurbishment last year to position it as a technologically advanced event space.

New AV features in the Georgian townhouse include live audio and video streaming, cinema-grade projection, interactive touch walls and 7.1 surround sound.

Discover the latest in venue technology.


Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark reopened in April 2012 and truly deserves its place in the Top 20. It has won four prestigious awards, been recognised by Trip Advisor as one of the world’s top 10 attractions, and is applying for a wedding license next year.

Event magazine also recently reported on our record breaking dinner on board the ship, where we catered for 500 guests in 24 hours as part of the World Travel Market.

Look around one of the world’s most astonishing landmarks.


41 Portland Place

Home to the Academy of Medical Sciences, Grade II*-listed 41 Portland Place has both indoor and outdoor event space – a rarity in the centre of London. The venue has hosted events for La Perla and Jaeger, and is currently transformed into The House of Peroni for a month long brand residency.

Take a tour around one of London’s coolest venues.

500 guests in 24 hours – Cutty Sark breaks its fine dining record

Posted on: November 4th, 2013 by chandco

This week the Cutty Sark will host back-to-back fine dining events as part of the World Travel Market.

Set to be two of the most prestigious and exclusive evenings of the week, it will be the first time that any caterer has hosted consecutive dinners of this scale aboard the landmark ship.

Today Harbour & Jones Events will cater for 270 at the UKinbound Gala Dinner, which will be attended by key figures in the travel and tourism industry.

Taking place tomorrow is the prestigious WTM Ministerial Dinner for 230 guests, which is organised by Reed Exhibition and in association with UNWTO World Travel Organisation and sponsored by the Travel Channel, who will also be providing guest speakers. The exclusive evening, now in its fifth year, will host Tourism Ministers, Senior Aides, private sector industry executives from around the world, and leading global travel trade publications.

Choosing only to work with iconic London venues, World Travel Market has previously hosted events at St Paul’s Cathedral, also a part of the Harbour & Jones Events venue collection. Instantly recognisable, Cutty Sark is one of the world’s most famous ships and the fastest and greatest of her time. She stands as a glorious monument to the age of sail and to all those who lost their lives in the merchant service. Situated on the shore of the mighty River Thames the ship provides commanding views over Canary Wharf and the City of London, making it an ideal historic venue.

Taking place at Excel London from 4-7 November, World Travel Market attracts 50,000 senior executives from the travel and tourism industry who will sign deals worth more than £2 billion.

Furthermore, WTM is worth more than £160m to the London economy through the discretionary spent of its delegates.
