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.

Celebration of our 1000th event with ‘All that Glitters Gotta be Glam’ party

Posted on: December 12th, 2012 by chandco

Two hundred esteemed guests from Harbour & Jones Events’ little black book of venues, event agents and corporate clients, including St Paul’s Cathedral, RSA House, Prince Philip House, JM Finn and JWT, descended on the Cutty Sark last Saturday 8th December for a fabulous ‘All that Glitters Gotta Be Glam’ (#allthatglitters) black tie party.

The glamorous affair was to celebrate Harbour & Jones’ 1,000th event and coincided with co-founder Nathan Jones’ 40th Birthday. Creative director Jules Heckman Hughes put the whole event together and was inspired by the glamour of Venetian balls using beading, ostrich feathers and glittered birds to adorn the tables, whilst using lighting effects to colour wash the venue in opulent hues of red and gold.

“We wanted to host the most glamorous affair possible and show our guests what Harbour & Jones Events is really capable of. However it was important for us to be true to the Cutty Sark and show how magnificent the restoration is and what a fantastic space it is for hosting dinner dances,” she said.

“We also used one of the other decks as a chill out bar, complete with Cutty Sark Storm Whisky, and this is the first time this has been done too.”

The menu evoked Jones’ favourite food memories including mini pies and pints (tiny steak and mushroom pies accompanied with a miniature ‘pint’ of beef broth and mushroom foam), foie gras, Welsh lamb and Welsh cheeses. All were accompanied with matching wines for full gastronomic indulgence. This is the first time that an event caterer has hosted both a reception and dinner for 200 guests on the ship.

Jones said: “I’m delighted to share the evening with our accomplishment of reaching 1,000 events. The party shows how far Harbour & Jones Events has come in four years. Not only do we cater in some of London’s most exclusive venues, we now offer a full event management service for clients, from venue sourcing to party styling.”

Entertainment during dinner came from RADA graduates, another of their clients, who sang a mix of show tunes and operatic songs. Post dinner a fabulous ‘Supremes’ band opened with ‘Nathan Jones’ the song after which Jones was named. The soul sisters got the crowd shimmying and shaking to a raft of popular Motown hits. As a finale, famous DJ Slipmatt upped the tempo a few notches with house classics to round the evening off in true Jones party style.

Guests were able to keep up to date with photos and post party news on Twitter by following @HandJEvents and #allthatglitters.

Suppliers of ‘All that Glitters Gotta be Glam’ include production and lighting by Event Concept, floral displays from Veevers Carter and dinner entertainment from RADA graduates.
