Cavendish Returns to the Trades Hall

The moment Cavendish (now known as Cavendish episode one) wrapped, there was an underlying sense between the cast and crew that we were walking away from something that still had more life in it. It felt a bit of an injustice not to continue Cavendish, especially given our strong team bond and passion for storytelling. What was more, knowing the interior of the Trades Hall has several different rooms, and having lovingly adopted the interior of the Trades Hall as ‘ours’, we knew there were many more episodes that could take place within these walls. Location is everything and the Trades Hall has been an incredible partner on this journey.

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!

'Venues Inspiration' & 'Take Your Pick Balconies'

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.


In the same magazine our historic external balcony is also featured in 'Take Your Pick Balconies': 'raise a glass to the start of married life as you gaze down at the streets of Glasgow's Merchant City..'

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.
