The Science Museum unveils new events space for limited time only

Posted on: July 6th, 2015 by chandco

The Science Museum in South Kensington is further enhancing its corporate events offer with a new space available for a limited time only. The Wellcome Wing Gallery is available to hire until the end of October and can be used to host conferences, product launches, fashion shows, exhibitions and experiential events.

The new conference and events space has capacity for 450 guests standing and is situated in the same section as the IMAX theatre. The two spaces can be used in conjunction with each other offering a separate area for break outs, exhibitions and drinks receptions alongside a main conference.

Jodie Guilford, Event Sales Manager at The Science Museum, said: “The Wellcome Wing Gallery is an exciting new space for events that we are pleased to now be able to offer clients. It is very much a blank canvas space and the fact that it is only available until October, means it is perfect for exclusive, one-of-a-kind events. The space will be available for dry hire and the events team will be on hand to help create bespoke and unique events that are guaranteed to wow guests.”

With just a limited time to experience the newest events space at the Science Museum, contact Lucy Mears, Sales & Marketing Manager: lucy@harbourandjones.co.uk to find out more.

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.
