Carbon Copy at Trades Hall

It was a treat to welcome (and listen to!) Carbon Copy - the award winning wedding band - to Trades Hall in January to shoot a promotional film for themselves. What a sound they created in our Grand Hall, which has amazing acoustics, and it looked pretty good too!

We are delighted to be featured in January 2020's Tie the Knot Scotland magazine, in their 'Venues Inspiration' article, which highlights Trades Hall's charitable status and our stunning rooms.

Cavendish comes to the Trades Hall

From the moment I wrote the script I knew that without the right location there would be no film.

Cavendish is a Scottish boarding school set in vast acreage with wood panel interiors, high ceilings and all the charm expected of a traditional, lovingly maintained historic building. Originally written as a few lines of dialogue for my show reel to showcase a critical age and emotional range to casting directors, Cavendish expanded into two scenes, casting two more actors and hiring seven members of crew. By the time I emptied my head of all the dialogue that needed to be spoken between Coach Maclay, Gracie Bennett and Phinneaus Brock, it felt more like a short film, and so we treated it as such.
