About us

Cavendish Press was founded in 1979 by the late Brian Whittle with just a telephone on a window-sill of his house overlooking Cavendish Road in the Greater Manchester suburb of Worsley.

Since then it has become one of Britain’s most respected press agencies syndicating top news stories, big features and eye catching photographs from across the UK and winning a string of industry awards. 

Cavendish Press is based on the outskirts of Manchester - the most vibrant city in Britain outside London and home to big business, celebrity, bustling nightlife, top TV shows, chart topping music and Premiership football. Manchester United and Manchester City the world’s richest football clubs and Coronation Street one of Britain’s most watched TV shows sit on our doorstep. So there is no shortage of info and unofficial pictures on your favourite footballers and soap stars.

Cavendish Press is proud to be one of Britain’s most versatile press agencies in filing news pictures and features to regional, national and international newspapers, celebrity and real life magazines, TV and radio stations.

We give Britain dramatic tales ranging from true life crime, heart rending human interest stories and medical scandals through to the latest news on top TV celebrities and our sporting heroes and pictures of the best concerts in town.

Cavendish is a member of the National Association of Press Agencies (NAPA) the trade body which represents reputable press agencies worldwide.
