The Trades House “Glasgow in London Dinner” was held in the modern opulence of Haberdashers’ Hall in London on Tuesday 10th September and attended by 160 crafts men and women, most of whom are members of Incorporations who live in the South.
Chaired by Deacon Convener Tom McInally the guests of honour included Sir David Wootton, Past Lord Mayor and London Sheriffs Vincent Keaveny and Liz Green. The Dinner was a splendid way of reconnecting with members in the South and with many members of the London Livery including several current Masters. Late Lord Mayor Sir Charles Bowman, who spoke at the first London in Glasgow dinner, was also a guest.
For anyone interested in Glasgow and its history, we are delighted to announce that this fascinating publication “Glasgow’s Best Kept Secret: The History of the Trades Hall” is hot off the press!
This beautiful limited edition has been painstakingly researched over the last three years by the Trades House Honorary Archivist, Craig Bryce and edited by Neil Baxter (previously Secretary and Treasurer of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland). Deacon Convener Tom McInally has also been instrumental in the book’s publication.
