Since working in the crewing industry, Gallowglass has had some incredible opportunities to work in numerous venues across the country. Our ‘Meet the Venue’ series is here to showcase the fantastic venues we have worked on whilst also displaying the skills and abilities of our team.
For February, we will be looking at Pinewood Studios in London. We will explore the history of the famous venue while also delving into some of the work Gallowglass have done there.
A Brief History
Dating back to the late 19th century, Heatherden Hall in Buckinghamshire, which was a Victorian estate, was owned by Doctor Drury Lavin. He then sold the estate to Lt Colonel Grant Morden who was a Canadian financer. He was in politics and spent roughly £300,000, which would equate to around £5 million in today’s money, to transform the mansion. Just some of the features he added included a lavish ballroom and Turkish bath.
