Harbour & Jones Events will be working alongside St Paul’s Cathedral to host the 2014 London First London Awards next week.
The event, run by not-for-profit organisation London First, is in its second year and will take place on 23 January. It recognises people, organisations and initiatives that have helped to define the capital’s international position over the past year.
Harbour & Jones Events and St Paul’s will be creating a classic British three-course fine dining menu in the cathedral’s crypt, which will be transformed for the evening by Ash Productions.
Rosie Day, St Paul’s Cathedral corporate events manager, said: “We’re thrilled to be a part of such a fantastic London-specific awards night. The winners from last year speak for themselves; Crossrail, London 2012 Games Makers and Olympic Delivery Authority, all of which have had a huge impact on London Life.
“As a landmark London venue we understand exactly how important it is to recognise and promote London businesses and their contribution to the city, which is exactly what the London Awards do.”
On the night four awards will be introduced by Baroness Jo Valentine, chief executive of London First, including investment in London’s future, improvement to Londoners’ quality of life, champion for London and contribution to London’s cultural excellence.
Partnering with Time Out magazine, the contribution to London’s cultural excellence has been open to reader vote since December and consists of a shortlist of big names.
Among the names are London 2012’s artistic director Danny Boyle; Tamara Rojo, artistic director of the English National Ballet; and Jason Atherton, executive chef at Gordon Ramsay’s Michelin-starred Maze restaurant.
The Shard, Roundhouse, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Selfridges, Granary Square, EDF Energy London Eye, Leicester Square, National Theatre and V&A are the venues shortlisted for the accolade.
