Do you know where the best religious venues in the UK are? Conference News reports…

Posted on: April 16th, 2013 by chandco

Hot off the press! Conference News has arrived in the Harbour & Jones Events office this morning and we are pleased to see that two of our venues have been mentioned – 41 Portland Place, for their summer menu showcase, and also St Paul’s Cathedral.

Profiling the best religious venues in the UK, Sarah O’Donnell, a reporter for Conference News, focuses on using churches for meetings and conferences.

Making the pilgrimage to see what the market can offer, Sarah headed to St Paul’s Cathedral, where Harbour & Jones Events are the in-house caterer.

Sarah writes…

St Paul’s Cathedral, London
With five event spaces, including the Crypt and Nelson Chamber, St Paul’s Cathedral is a setting for dinners for up to 250 guests and receptions for up to 350 as well as conferences and lunches for up to 70. The event spaces contain some of the oldest architectural features but have been transformed into venues for corporate hospitality.

The North Churchyard is St Paul’s Cathedral’s newest and first outdoor event space. This can accommodate receptions and BBQs for up to 250 and is one of a few outdoor event spaces located within the City of London.

Guests can also privately access the cathedral floor during their events. Tour guides and musical performances can also be organized.

Most unique event ever held (Also catered for by Harbour & Jones Events):
St Paul’s Cathedral held its first ever fashion show in January. Guests entered the event via the Cathedral floor before moving down to St Paul’s Crypt, which had been transformed into a catwalk. Following the show guests enjoyed a champagne drinks reception in the Nelson Chamber.

200 esteemed guests from Harbour and 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 on Saturday 8th December 2012 for a fabulous ‘All that Glitters Gotta Be Glam’ black tie party.

The glamorous affair was to celebrate Harbour and Jones’ 1,000th event and coincided with co-founder Nathan Jones’ 40th Birthday.


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.

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.
