Whether you're planning a press day, pop-up event, exhibition or showcase, you're going to want a venue which really represents your brand. Choosing a blank canvas venue gives you complete artistic license, and allows for all of the extra details which make your event unique.

With our top seven blank canvas venues, the event-planning world can become your oyster – no matter how over-the-top your ideas might seem.

1. Printworks

Canada Water


Printworks is in a league of its own when it comes to blank canvas spaces. Made up of six industrial warehouse spaces with a total capacity of 5000, it also has six acres of private, gated land - basically, it's big.

It's obviously ideal for huge brand launches, but with a bit of vision, each space can be used for anything, including smaller dinners, beer festivals and art exhibitions.

Formerly the print factory for The Evening Standard and The Daily Mail, the industrial venue is a fascinating backdrop whatever the event.

2. Lindley Hall

South Kensington

With its Grade II listed status Lindley Hall is both a beautiful and interesting blank canvas venue.

Part of the Royal Horticultural Halls, the space has a stunning glass vaulted ceiling and the largest uninterrupted floor space in Central London that can accommodate up to 650 people.

Perfect for weddings, launches and even conferences, Lindley Hall is hugely versatile.

3. Studio at Blank100

Dalston Junction


Looking at its crisp, white interior, you may find it difficult to believe that Blank100 was originally used as a furniture making warehouse at the beginning of the 20th century.

Having been converted into a clean and contemporary space for up to 70 guests, the Studio at Blank100 has become a popular venue for art exhibitions, pop-up events, screenings and photo shoots.

4. Hellenic Centre

Baker Street


The Hellenic Centre's Great Hall is an impressive 2605 square foot space, which has the capacity for up to 250 people.

With its high ceilings, white-washed walls and staging options, this blank canvas can be easily adapted for a multitude of eye-catching events.

Though lit by natural daylight, The Great Hall can also be fully blacked out if required. Fully integrated AV and high-speed internet also come as standard.

5. IceTank

Covent Garden


This beautifully stark space in the heart of London is truly blank canvas. With bright white walls from floor to ceiling, it can be completely transformed which makes it an ideal venue for any event for up to 120 people.

From immersive experiential events and product launches to 'Winter Wonderland' Christmas parties, the only limit is your imagination.

6. Warehouse 89

Shoreditch High St


With a maximum capacity of 400, Warehouse 89 is the ultimate blank canvas venue for hosting unforgettable events.

Based in Shoreditch, Warehouse 89 is at the heart of London's creative scene – something reflected in its industrial and airy interior.

Alongside the basement area, guests will also be given access to the venue's outdoor courtyard and an exclusive private entrance.

7. Umbrella Factory

Bethnal Green


Unsurprisingly, the Umbrella Factory started life as an umbrella factory for Schaverien & Sons, before becoming the studio of famous photographer Wolfgang Tillmans.

Now a minimalist event space, this 3,000 square foot warehouse can accommodate up to 200 guests.

Neighbouring trendy Shoreditch and Whitechapel, the Umbrella Factory has become unsurprisingly popular for hosting art exhibitions and photo shoots.
