Festive fun as white Christmas takes gold at RSA House

Posted on: December 19th, 2014 by chandco

What do you get if you cross an £8 budget with 180 metres of tin foil, years worth of repurposed event decorations and a brand new events team? It’s ok, it’s not a bad cracker joke; it’s the winners of the annual Royal Society of Art Christmas decorating competition.

Our Harbour & Jones Events team at RSA House were looking for ways to raise their profile and get to know colleagues around the venue. What better way to get involved than by transforming the events office at RSA House, home to enlightened thinking, into a winter wonderland?

Every day, the team came together for ‘power half-hour’, adding decorations and displays to the space. It started with a computer screen being given the gift of wrapping and snowballed from there.

RSA House has seen it’s busiest Christmas to date this year, with award-winning restaurant The Vaults hosting 50 covers at lunch throughout December and back-to-back events across the venue.

Alex Campbell, Sales & Marketing Manager was really pleased with the teams efforts ‘It’s been really great to meet everyone and join in the festive spirit of the RSA. Business is booming and we’re all rushed off our feet, so it’s nice to be able to give something back to the team – a bit of fun goes a long way.’

Other efforts from around the offices included a handmade nativity scene, festive origami and a Christmas tree made entirely from books. But our team literally whitewashed the competition to take first place. The prize? Fame and glory, of course.

Stars Come Out for Our Glamourous THT After Party

Posted on: November 4th, 2012 by chandco

Helping the Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) celebrate the charity’s annual Supper Club in style, H&J were asked to plan a glamorous after party at one of London’s newest and most spectacular venues, One Mayfair. Taking place on October 31, 50 dazzling dinner parties were held simultaneously in some of the UK’s finest restaurants and private residences to raise money for the THT charity. H&J’s events and sales team were also in attendance, taking a table at The Goring. At the end of the meal guests were whisked off in a fleet of taxis to the exclusive after party, ready to be greeted by a team from H&J.

The 450 guests were treated to delicious late night fare and cocktails, which were designed specially for the event, including the Pink Pigeon Rum Swizzler, Blue Disco and Ketel One Flirtini.Dressing the venue in extravagant silks of pink and white, H&J not only expertly styled the event, but also planned every last detail, from the lighting and production to the food and drink.

Guests enjoyed entertainment from DJ Prince Nelly during the star-studded evening, which was attended by Graham Norton, Sue Perkins, Ronni Ancona, Russell Tovey, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Charles Worthington, Dan Gillespie Sells and Matthew Cain.

This year’s event raised more then £90,000 for THT, which supports sexual health and HIV in the UK.
