What an amazing venue for a wedding! 120 covers and over 200 in the evening. Well looked after by Elaine and the staff. Great Glasgow history in this building - so much better than a stuffy formica type hotel.

Attended the Craftex Exhibition. Beautifully maintained Hall with lots of original features. The Trades Hall still funds crafts in Glasgow. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice Hall to visit for some history of Glasgow.
