Tonic reach finalist status

Posted on: August 1st, 2016 by chandco

Two years ago we were awarded the coveted Caterer of the Year title at Event magazine’s annual awards ceremony.  This year, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve been shortlisted again as an Event Awards finalist for Caterer of the Year 2016.

We won the 2014 award following a hard battle involving a written submission and a heated cook off and presentation. A panel of industry-recognised judges including Event magazine personnel devoured our creative menu during the tasting stage at famed Borough Market.

We’re excited to be entered into the finalist draw once again and are eager to show the judges what we’ve been up to recently. This year the tasting stage will take place on 7th September, returning to the same venue, and preparations are already underway at Harbour & Jones Events HQ for what promises to be a tough competition.

Congratulations to all of our team for getting so far and fingers crossed.

We’re recruiting for a sales and events coordinator at one of London’s most prestigious venues, 41 Portland Place.

Event 100 Club reveal party

Posted on: December 18th, 2013 by chandco

Last night our creative director Jules Heckman-Hughes was announced as the 44th most influential person in the events industry over the last year.

Attended by over 300 event professionals the team at Harbour & Jones Events, including Prince Philip House, RSA House and 41 Portland Place, headed to Batteresea Evolution for the much anticipated Event 100 Club reveal party that was hosted by Event Magazine and organised by Smart Hospitality.

Event 100 Club is a prestigious industry list that profiles some of the biggest names in events. To give an idea of just how high the caliber is, the amazingly talented Danny Boyle was number one last year owing to his opening ceremony masterpiece that was created for the 2012 London Olympics.

We’re more than proud of Jules and her truly deserved position in the list. Jules was the pioneering member of our company and the driving force behind the official launch of Harbour & Jones Events at our premiere site, the prestigious Royal Society. Since then she has helped us go from strength to strength, delivering outstanding, high quality events with her own unique and strong sense of style.

With impeccable service skills and an unrelenting eye for detail, Jules’ unequivocal standards have attracted more and more high profile clients to Harbour & Jones Events.

Congratulations Julesy!

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.
