In pictures: Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts

Posted on: July 7th, 2015 by chandco

 

Our first Summer Exhibition event for JM Finn & Co at the Royal Academy of Arts took place in June 2012, with 350 guests. Every year the popularity of the event increases, and this year 7,800 canapes and bowls were circulated to more than 750 guests across all the main galleries.

Inspired by the images in the main galleries, our team created an evening event filled with colour and creativity. Bold coloured bars, painted oil drums with vibrant ombre tipped branches and a feature tree display floated atop golden plinths as a centrepiece to the proceedings.

Our bespoke food stations featured freshly prepared sushi by Rosa, our Harbour & Jones Events sushi chef, Peruvian ceviche, and British meats and cheeses.

Art-themed usherette trays and mini painter’s canvasses were created specifically for this event to showcase a feast of marshmallows, macarons, chocolate-dipped iced fudge and custom-made shortbread paintbrushes.

Harbour & Jones Events appointed sole caterer at IET London: Savoy Place

Posted on: June 2nd, 2015 by chandco

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.”

Patrick Harbour, Director of Harbour & Jones Events, says: “We are delighted to be bringing our expertise and  experience in the event catering industry to the fore at the stunning new IET London: Savoy Place. Creating innovative and ethically sound menu options with the best that British produce has to offer, we’re excited to find a like-minded partner in IET Venues and Events.”

IET London: Savoy Place will open its doors for internal events on October 16, with the venue fully opening on 1 November 2015.

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.
