Why Cavendish

Founded in 1995

Cavendish Venues is London’s leading dedicated Meeting, Conference & Event operator with four purpose-built venues.

Founded in 1995 by our Chairman, Tom Mayers, Cavendish Venues has 29 years hospitality experience. Our business has grown based on one simple thesis – to provide consistently exceptional service to our valued clients.  

The team at Cavendish Venues is the core of our business, principles that have grown over almost three decades of best-practice and fostered by our two original Shareholders, Dermot Waldron and Rachel Applegate. Our team are guided by our fearless General Manager, Lina Lai. 

Elliott Sparsis is CEO and brings a depth of Private Equity and Hospitality experience as Cavendish Venues moves into a period of considered growth, based on the shift in growing demand in London for adaptable, well-priced Meeting, Conference and Event spaces.
