Unique London venues & locations

With a wealth of experience in both property and venue management, Blank Canvas offers the events and creative industries new, exciting and unusual venues in London.

Blank Canvas can source and negotiate short-term and long-term leases for all types of briefs and buildings for venue hire.

We have the rare knack of identifying unusual buildings with the potential to make desirable event spaces. For example, our past involvement in Battersea Power Station and the Farmiloe Building helped to create new and exciting world class event spaces.

Our team’s combined venue, promotions and event management experience amounts to more than 70 years, and encompasses some of the most iconic buildings, events and unique venues in London.

A thorough grounding in event production means we can anticipate the impact of a range of demands on buildings, while our comprehensive knowledge of the marketplace brings insight and commercial awareness to fee negotiation and project management.

For last minute or complex briefs, we can call on an extended network of highly skilled people who can help you deliver a successful event at an unusual venue in London.
