header_events1.jpgWelcome to the first edition of INSPIRE, the new update from Legion Events. In this edition we ask if you are planning a Christmas party or lunch, and take time to interview Leon Lloyd.

Enjoy!

Even the three wise men needed direction

Are you planning a Christmas party or looking to take clients out for lunch?

Christmas and  New Year are the perfect time to shout about your brand, say thank you to all of your loyal customers and reward your hard working staff – it is the season of goodwill after all!

Legion Events can manage your Christmas party or Christmas lunch. Furthermore, if you would like to make this occasion even more memorable, we are able to arrange the appearance of famous sports personalities from the world of rugby, football, athletics and others.

I would like further information and pricing

Watch out for our calendar of events for 2014 coming soon!

The Big Interview…

Joanne Maling, Group Marketing Manager, takes 5 minutes to interview Leon Lloyd, CEO Legion Events.

THE SERIOUS BUSINESS…

What were the highlights of 2013 for you?Legion Events
2013 has been an extraordinarily busy year, and launching not one but two inaugural rugby festivals. I am pleased to say that both the Legends Rugby Festival we held in Wimbledon, and the Legion Geneva Challenge we held in Switzerland were a huge success. The event team did a remarkable job over the summer, and massive thanks for all their hard work.

2014 is a bumper year for sport. What do you think is worth keeping on the radar?
The first challenge is to repeat last year’s successful rugby festivals, raise the bar and make them even more successful. In addition, the Commonwealth Games are to be held in Glasgow and will reignite the excitement that London 2012 created.

Legion Events is strong in the field of rugby. Is there a strategy to move into other sports during 2014?
Absolutely, 2013 saw us dip our toes into the golfing world with our support of the Mike Tindall celebrity golf challenge. Legion Events also ran an event with SportAid which is a successful charity that supports our athletes of the future.

We are approached regularly by athletes from various sports and asked to represent them through Legion Sports Management. We are a proactive group of businesses able to look at any sport and make a real difference whether for the individual or on a commercial arrangement.

SERIOUS FUN…

If you could have a super power what would it be?
I would like to be able to freeze time so that I can catch up with everything that’s going on around me. Everything is moving so fast since retiring from professional sport, and my children are growing up so quickly that I would like to be able to take stock and enjoy it all a bit more.

If you could be a ‘fly on the wall’ anywhere where would it be?
I would start with Number 10 and then nip over to the White House and see how differently things could be managed. Don’t get me wrong, I am no politician, but I would like to think I do have a degree of common sense from time to time.

What is your most memorable sporting moment?
Other than gaining my first international cap for England against South Africa in 2000, I would have to say that scoring the winning try in injury time for Leicester Tigers in the Heineken Cup final in Paris, is up there with my best moments ever!

What would you tell your 10 year old self?
Always remember your manners and be polite to people on the way up as you may pass them again on the way down. There’s going to be something invented called the internet, embrace it and simply develop a social media platform to capitalise on. The world needs to communicate with each other and the rest will take care of itself!

Finally, what has INSPIRED you?
The Baz Luhrmann song ‘Sun cream’.

Hawksmoor Air Street Soft Launch details – 50% off food

Featured

“Hawksmoor sometimes seems less a restaurant than a meat-worshipping cult, such are the levels of devotion its weighty, dry-aged, charcoal-grilled beef inspires.” Time Out

Hawksmoor Air Street – Soft Launch details

We’re opening our fourth restaurant and cocktail bar on 1st November on Air Street, just off Piccadilly. This time it’s a steak and seafood restaurant, and we’ve teamed up with our favourite seafood chef, Mitch Tonks (The Seahorse, Dartmouth) to make sure the latter is as good as it can possibly be.  Air Street is our biggest (and most nerve-wracking) project to date with 235 seats in the restaurant and a further 50 in the bar. It’s going to be a beautiful art deco room, which we really hope you’ll love – it’s already looking fantastic, and the builders have less than three weeks to go until they finish it!

Soft Launch details

Every year we do the same deal – 50% off food during the soft launch as we fine tune, and every year we’re massively over-subscribed.  If you’d like to come we’d be thrilled, but please bear in mind we can’t accommodate everyone, although we will try our hardest!  

Instructions as follows:

The soft launch will start at lunchtime on Monday 22nd of October and continue until dinner on Wednesday 31st. If you’d like to try and get a table please email us at airstreet@thehawksmoor.com with your name, preferred date and whether you’d like to book for lunch or dinner, as well as number of guests, an email address and a telephone number. The more flexible you are the more likely it is that we can find you something – it’s first come first served so “I’ll take any time on any day” is more likely to get a table than “I could do any time on Monday night”, and, unless you reply pretty quickly, “I’d like 8pm on Friday 26th” is going to be fairly unlikely.

We get thousands of emails, and although we have three people working on it full time it can take us a while to get back to you, please bear with us.  Unfortunately we don’t take bookings for the soft launch by phone, and we’re unable to get back to you with alternative times if the ones you want are unavailable – we know from experience that we have to do it this way or we create a bit of frustration.

Good luck!

All very well, but if you really want to get in, call Legion Concierge first!

Barbecoa

Barbecoa is a celebration of the world’s best meat and traditional cooking methods. Our chefs use texas pit smokers, tandoors, fire pits, robata grills and wood-fired ovens. As you sit at your table overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral, you’ll see the flames lick and the smoke drift upwards.

Barbecoa turns two

Compared to the neighbouring St Paul’s Cathedral, two years isn’t very old. But it’s hard to believe our own cathedral to fire and food opened two years ago today. We’ve come a long way since then and our fire- and smoke-filled kitchen is busier than ever, so we’ve got lots more exciting plans for both the restaurant and the Barbecoa butchery. But before we get started on those plans, we’ve got another celebration to enjoy – Christmas!

Butchery Masterclasses – the perfect Christmas gift

You don’t have to book a table in the restaurant to get a taste of Barbecoa. We have our own butchers shop just around the corner, where you can buy all the beautiful dry-aged beef and other meat we serve to take home to cook yourself. Even better, for those who want to know more about the art of butchery (and believe us, it’s an art) we run regular butchery masterclasses that would make the perfect Christmas gift. During the 2 hour, hands-on sessions one of our award-winning butchers will guide you through the process from the moment the carcass is delivered to the moment it hits the plate. This is the ultimate Barbecoa experience: you’ll feel the meat between your fingers, experience the cold of the fridges, smell the smoky aromas, feel the heat of the kitchen & be part of the buzz of the restaurant.

Christmas at Barbecoa

To make an enquiry simply call us on 020 3005 8555. For parties of more than 20 or exclusive hire of Barbecoa, please emailevents@barbecoa.com with your requirements and we’ll get back to you soon.Celebrate Christmas in a way you’ll never forget at Barbecoa. Whether it’s with friends or colleagues, we have private and semi-private dining areas for groups and three incredible set menus to choose from, as well as an amazing wine and cocktail list to get your guests in the festive mood. We can also arrange whiskey tastings at your table and butchery demonstrations in our own artisan butchery to make your party even more memorable.

Barbecoa on the go

In a hurry? Don’t forget that we have a our market stall in One New Change every weekday from 11.30am – 2.30pm selling our delicious pulled pork sandwiches and home made frankfurters! Or perhaps you fancy something a bit more substantial and meaty! Check out our To Go menuand enjoy a Barbecoa Burger at your desk!

 

We look forward to welcoming you to Barbecoa soon. Call Legion Concierge for reservations 0203 355 8169.
