About Trades Hall

Trades Hall is the home of The Trades House of Glasgow, established in 1605 and now a registered charity (SC040548).

Trades House focuses its support upon deserving causes and individuals across the City of Glasgow through provision of support services, general benevolent work, and donations of more than £700,000 per annum being awarded by the charity and the 14 Incorporated Crafts.

With recent major refurbishment taking place (including a fabulous lighting system to highlight Trades Hall's outstanding features and a state of the art air conditioning system) Trades Hall has all the modern amenities in place to ensure you and your guests can relax and enjoy your event.

The venue itself is stunning; we knew it was the one as soon as we viewed it. But the fantastic service we received and the lovely people we worked with really made it the whole package. I would highly recommend!


The House and its 14 Incorporated Crafts have helped shape Glasgow into the city it is today and has made its mark by playing a pivotal and progressive role in training and fostering trade and industry through a wide variety of initiatives to support the education and training of the youth of Glasgow.

This includes projects such as Craftex, the School Craft Awards, Modern Apprentice of the Year Award and School Citizenship Award.

Disabled access

Disabled facilities are situated on the ground floor and first floor. We have a lift which enables access to the first and second floors. The maximum load weight for this is 190 kg.

Please note that whilst we do everything possible to make your visit to Trades Hall as accessible as possible, the building is very old. There are, therefore, unfortunately some areas that are more difficult to access.
