LIVERY - BUT MAKE IT FASHION!
15 Jan 2020 | Shay Stanberry
As we kick-start the new year, we reflect on all of the amazing ways our City venue spaces have been utilised. Most recently Skinners’ Hall for Edward Crutchley’s Winter 2020 fashion show – think livery but make it fashion! Our Instagram blew up as fashion show attendees tagged the venue on their Instagram pages #SkinnersHall for Men’s Fashion Week in London. Skinners’ Hall boasts a charming paved courtyard that leads to the warm and atmospheric hall, complete with outstanding paintings, coats of arms and period furniture – a fitting backdrop for Edwards’ eponymous label that uses an innate knowledge of artisanal textile techniques from around the world, a true reflection of contemporary luxury. The multifaceted venue has also been used to film popular reality show Made in Chelsea, a variety of music videos and both Paddington films.
As well as fashion and art, our halls make stunning backdrops for filming movies, TV shows, music videos and more, additionally they can be used as a holding space for other nearby events. Saddlers’ Hall, previously used to film First Dates, Britain's Got Talent and a range of music videos, was built in a neo-classical style beautifully furnished with period pieces and paintings as well as examples of the Saddlers' trade.
Barber-Surgeons’ Hall is an elegant and welcoming venue offering wonderfully laid out reception rooms that lead into the Great Hall, with proceedings looked over by Henry VIII in the Holbein painting, it has also hosted the Made in Chelsea cast and crew.
Additionally, Apothecaries’ Hall is a discreet venue with an atmospheric courtyard, also suitable for filming and fashion fun - the Great Hall is oak panelled with beautiful stained-glass windows.
